Tips for Planning a Practicum

These tips are intended to help students plan appropriate practicum experiences. Students should always plan in consultation with their advisor or the Director of Academics.

  • If you have limited teaching experience, arrange a teaching practicum at the community college or 4-year institution level.
  • If you are currently teaching at a community college or 4-year institution, arrange a practicum where you conduct additional curriculum development or assessment 
  • If you have more than two years teaching experience in the last 10 years at the community college level, arrange a teaching practicum at the 4-year institution level.
