Some EDCI courses require clinical experiences. This involves candidates completing observation, participation, and teaching hours. Observation hours are completed near the beginning of the semester. Candidates are asked to focus and reflect on particular topics established by the university instructor. Mid-semester, candidates should have the opportunities to begin working one-on-one and in small groups with P-12 students. Near the end of the semester the candidate will deliver the lesson they have created to the entire class. This provides candidates opportunities to work with P-12 students.
