A Review of UCEA Member Institutions Clinical Experiences/Internship/Field Experiences for Educational Leaders.
Pautler, Albert J., Jr.
Internship and field experience practices of University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) member institutions in the United States are examined in this report. Questionnaires were completed by 44 out of 47 chairpersons of educational administration departments at 44 UCEA member schools, a 93.6 percent response rate. Data were compared with stated requirements issued by the UCEA and the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA). Findings indicate that the majority of reporting UCEA institutions appear to meet the UCEA goal of concentrated full-time study and supervised clinical practice. Few, however, meet the NPBEA ideal of one full year of field residency. Practices vary widely in the areas of credit hours, clock hours, requirements, seminars, contracts, location of internships, and state education department requirements. The recommendation is made for a shorter internship period involving more full-time work and more stringent supervision. Two tables are included. (14 references) (LMI)
