Office of Student Teaching

The Office of Student Teaching and Field Experiences is responsible for the organization and administration of all field and clinical experiences related to the teacher education program at Eastern Kentucky University.

This website is useful for student teachers, students completing field assignments prior to student teaching, cooperating teachers who supervise student teachers, and university supervisors of student teachers. On our website, you will find documents that assist the student teaching process and the pre-student teaching field experiences.

Our staff receives and evaluates all applicants for student teaching, determines the appropriate disposition of the application, collaborates with area schools for appropriate placements for student teachers, and provides continuous assessment of the candidates' field and clinical experiences during the professional semester. Many of our policies are governed by Kentucky Regulations and the policies and procedures outlined by the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board.

EKU's Professional (Teacher) Education Program is committed to the mission of the College of Education: "To teach, To learn, To help others teach and learn." Here is a look at our Conceptual Framework. We believe that all children can learn at high levels and we are committed to providing high quality field experiences that demonstrate and support all of our professional education programs. We seek and encourage field placements and clinical experiences in diverse educational settings. Emersion in diverse and multicultural experiences enriches and contributes to personal and professional growth. These positive experiences better prepare our candidates for their professional careers in any setting.

Please contact our office if you have any questions or any difficulties navigating our site.
