Practicum 1

ORG LP789 - Practicum 1

Credits: 1

A field-based practicum is an important component of the learning and development process for school leaders.  It is an opportunity to extend classroom learning, apply theory to practice, and pilot leadership skills along with advancing one’s understanding of collaboration and distributive leadership practice.  To complement and support their practicum work, students will attend a weekly seminar.  The purpose of seminar is to enable students to reflect on their fieldwork activities, gain experience as peer coaches, learn from their peers’ practicum experiences, to gain faculty supervision of their work in the field, and bring site supervisors and GCSL students together for professional learning and the application of course content to the field-based experience.
