Designing a Curriculum for Clinical Experiences
Henning, John E.; Erb, Dorothy J.; Randles, Halle Schoener; Fults, Nanette; Webb, Kathy
Issues in Teacher Education, v25 n1 p23-38 Spr 2016
The purpose of this article is to describe a collaborative effort among five teacher preparation programs to create a conceptual tool designed to put clinical experiences at the center of our programs. The authors refer to the resulting product as a clinical curriculum. The clinical curriculum describes a developmental sequence of clinical experiences that move from simpler to more complex teaching skills, from working with fewer to larger numbers of students, and from requiring less to more planning and decision-making. In this paper, the authors will explicate the process used for the development of a clinical curriculum, describe the resulting product and its elements, and show how a clinical curriculum can be used as an catalyzing agent for designing and implementing a clinically based teacher preparation program.
