Teacher Education Program Requirements
Randall University provides opportunities for students to apply their content, professional, and pedagogical knowledge, skills, and dispositions in various classroom settings that reflect diverse student bodies. For those students who are considering a career in education, Early Field Experience assists them in making their career decision, and understanding the application of theory to the classroom. Programs have a minimum of two placements that occur in settings that provide diversity in respect to geographic location, size of community, type of school, socio-economic status, age of learners, learner needs, and opportunities to experience cultures different from one’s own. (Field Experience hours are described on page 17 of the Education Handbook. An Overview of Clinical Practice can be found on page 20.)
