If you are an initial, alternative-route candidate (teaching on a TC-TP) you will complete hours both in your classroom and in other school settings, depending on the requirements of your program. You are required to document all of these field experiences. Be sure you:
- Check with your advisor for details about the specific field experience requirements associated with your program.
- Check with your professor(s) to see if there are any requirements specific to your course(s). If you need assistance in locating a field placement for a course, please work directly with the course professor.
Once you have done these things, follow the procedures below to report on your field experiences.
Step 1: Print Forms for Collection
While you are in the field, you will need to collect detailed information about each experience. Download the form linked below and print copies to take with you.
(Note: Make sure you collect all of the data indicated on the form for each experience. The systems below will not accept partially complete experiences. Also, if your experience spans multiple class periods, each period should be treated as a separate experience.)
Step 2: Enter the field experience data you collected into the Georgetown College Education Department field experience system
After you have completed your field experience, enter the information into the department’s field experience system.
