• Simultaneous Renewal and the Value of Real-World Practice

  • Kristie Cole, principal of Paradise Elementary school, is excited to be a clinical partner of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). She enjoys watching her teachers mentor future teachers, watching preservice teachers grow, and seeing her elementary students learn from the candidates’ learning. What’s more, she is happy to have a stronger pipeline of well-prepared new teachers available to hire. The on-campus CSUN Preschool enjoys similar benefits, according to Director Claire Tredwell, and UNLV’s clinical settings now include ages birth through high school, providing a rich education continuum in which to learn and conduct research.
