EDC 2003 Clinical Experiences in Education

This course is a pre student teaching practicum for students to gain a professional learning experience through observation and discussion. A minimum 30 hour clinical component is required in a school. A weekly 50 minute seminar is provided for students to focus on classroom issues including classroom management and effective teaching and learning methods/styles. Discussions of classroom situations are explored as they gain experience through the practicum. This course requires direct contact with children. Because of that fact, students will be required to complete a background check and they are held accountable to the IVCC Disposition Statement Policy. Suggested concurrent enrollment in EDC 2000.
