The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is reimagining teacher education by offering a competency-based, time-variable master’s in education. A major component of the program is the rich clinical experience which fully integrates with the teacher candidates’ academic work. Clinical placement provides a vehicle for instruction, practice and demonstration that is targeted to the competencies that each teacher candidate needs to master. It includes three types of clinical experiences: time in schools, simulations, and out-of-school time (OST). In this way, the clinical component of the Academy’s teacher preparation provides strategic opportunities for teacher candidates to learn and demonstrate the skills they will need to thrive as teachers of record.
The WW Academy is seeking a part-time Assistant Director of Clinical Practice and Student Support to help facilitate this crucial aspect of the Academy program. Find more information on the opportunity here.
