EDL 713 - Practicum in Teacher Leadership

Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: EDL-710
Under the direction of a mentor, chosen in tandem with the candidate’s school district and the Maryville advisor, the candidate will begin an in depth and extended practical experience with the area of teacher leadership as the focus. The experience should consist of a minimum of 300 hours to be completed over the course of the EdD program. The practicum must include on-site experiences across a range of district and school level curriculum, instruction, assessment and professional development work to develop expertise in the field of teacher leadership. Examples of appropriate experiences include observations and/or leadership of the curriculum development process, observation and analysis of current pedagogical strategies, analysis of student achievement data to determine building and district level professional development needs etc. The final product will in part be the development of a significant professional development experience to be made available free of charge, either in the candidates district or as an institute held at Maryville University, for teachers in the St Louis Region.
