Integrating Clinical Experiences Throughout the Preservice Curriculum.
Mills, Patricia L.
In response to a mandate from the Ohio State Board of Education, Bowling Green State University (Ohio) revised its teacher education curriculum to include clinical/laboratory teaching experiences as well as field experiences. Clinical experiences are defined as learning activities which may, but do not necessarily, take place off the college campus, and may occur on the campus in a laboratory setting, as well as in an approved or chartered school or other settings approved by the college. Explicit criteria were established which characterized the design and implementation of all clinical experiences. This report focuses on the process of change as specifically related to the clinical experience component of the state mandate. The appendix includes a reprint of the standards for schools of education as set forth by the Ohio Board of Education, policies governing the design of clinical experiences, and a course syllabus and a clinical activity format.
