The Division of Professional Education programs include field-based experiences that provide for observation and practice. They are designed to meet the current Ohio Teacher Education and Licensure Standards. Each student completes field-based experiences in diverse settings (cultural, racial, and socioeconomic). Field experiences are an integral part of each of the professional education courses taken. Candidates must have at least 100 hours of field experience before being admitted to their clinical internship/student teaching placement.
