Clinical experience/teacher internship is a program requirement for candidates seeking recommendation for an initial license through Fayetteville State University. The clinical experience/teacher internship experience provides an opportunity to meld knowledge and theory with practice. It is during the clinical experience/teacher internship experience that candidates utilize the skills and methodologies learned in their coursework. Clinical experience is the last major step before the candidate enters the teaching profession.
Clinical experience/teacher internship is a cooperative endeavor between the University and the public schools. The partnership is designed to exchange ideas, to plan cooperatively, and to provide candidates with a realistic and natural setting for a culminating experience.
A solid clinical experience program contributes in facilitating teamwork by providing the clinical experience/teacher intern with an opportunity to acquire, under supervised guidance, an understanding of the teaching process. It also provides an appropriate environment where candidates can demonstrate mastery of the skills involved in guiding the teaching of children.
Application (PDS and Traditional) for clinical experience/teacher internship must be the semester before the experience is anticipated. Applications should be completed and submitted to the Department Chair.
