EDU-559A Guided Practice/Internship

3 semester credits
The externship offers students the opportunity to apply and develop the educational leadership theory and program conceptual framework presented in the course of study to their professional practice. Faculty and advisory groups supervise, review and assess curricular artifacts including a professional development portfolio, capstone action research project, monthly reflections, journals and standards based professional development plans. In addition students use technology through forum discussions, search strategies, electronic data base searches and lesson plan development to demonstrate the learning outcomes for each term. The externship provides students the field experience to develop and demonstrate the collaborative leadership and learning in their work setting based on current theory and practice. Through the externship and artifacts students demonstrate instructional leadership for student learning, the capacity to create and sustain school wide change, collaborative processes as a member of a learning community, capacity to promote and apply reflective practices, capacity to model and share effective strategies for supporting knowledge creation and learning. Students engage in critical inquiry through action research, demonstrate authentic learning and assessment directly into class and/or school and are prepared to teach and create learning opportunities toward an equitable and just education system.
