Clinical Field Experience in Educational Administration: A Regional Study.
Hall, Robert F.; Lutz, Keith W.
The need for clinical field experience in preparation programs for educational administrators is examined. A review of literature addressing this issue is presented, followed by a description of a 12-state survey conducted to determine how clinical field experience for the preparation of educational administrators was structured. Forty-three out of 75 educational administration departments in colleges and universities responded. The most common method reported for supervising students in an internship was a combination of a department faculty member and a field practitioner. Summaries are provided of the structure of the clinical field experience programs at the following universities: Central Missouri State University; Illinois State University; Indiana State University; Ohio University; University of Minnesota; and Western Illinois University. It is argued that the field experience in educational administration can best be completed in three phases: (1) introductory experiences; (2) internship; and (3) first-year consultation and support.
