The Internship in Teaching is the culminating field-based experience for all programs leading to teacher certification. It is a continuous, full time (five days per week) experience during which, after a period of structured observation, students gradually assume responsibility for a full range of teaching activities encountered in a school situation, thereby demonstrating the appropriate professional skills and attitudes essential for successful teaching. The Internship in Teaching is conducted under the supervisory guidance of a Mentor Teacher and members of the university faculty (University Supervisors). Required seminars complement the experience.
