Reflecting on the Practicum: An Invitation to Continue the Conversation
Abeywickrama, Priya; Santos, Maricel G.; Olsher, David
CATESOL Journal, v27 n2 p239-248 2015
This special theme section was an invaluable opportunity for the guest editors of this "CATESOL Journal" 2015 special theme issue to promote reflection and dialogue on the practicum experience as a professional activity. As part of this exploration, the editors also wanted to find out more about practicum experiences in other TESOL teacher-education programs. They sent out a short questionnaire to practicum course instructors and/or TESOL program coordinators throughout California to tap into faculty perspectives on their student teachers' practicum experiences, their advice and practical insights on how to organize practicum courses, and wisdom gained through the years having taught such courses. Comments from the questionnaires and questions for reflection are presented in this article.
