EDL-700 Field-Based Practicum
The Field-Based Practicum is a culminating activity for students completing the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership (MAEdL) program. It requires the student to engage in a 150-hour Practicum experience, and thus the completion of 300 hours of Practicum activities, at a school site or at an alternative site where the student can put leadership theory into practice, working with a local school administrator and the course mentor. The student will design and implement a series of administrative, supervisory, curricular, and professional development activities that address the standards developed by the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC). Activities will be structured to address each of the six ISLLC Standards during the 12-week Practicum. On completion of the activities, the student will develop a final report that includes artifacts as well as analysis and reflective commentary on the Practicum (ISLLC 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; NJDOE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
Note: School of Business Administration students are required to complete 150 practicum hours for their program.
