• Strong Partnerships, Extended Clinical Time Prepare Profession-Ready Candidates

  • With extended time in school settings and support from the school- and university-based teacher educators, Butler University’s preservice teachers transform from student to professional earlier than past candidates. This shift in both their own mindset and others’ expectations gives candidates greater confidence and competence as instructional leaders in the classroom and beyond—and translates into program graduates who are in demand as new hires. Meanwhile the schools where they student teach have a unique window on their development that amounts to an extended interview, should a position come open in their field once they graduate.
