The Clinical Curriculum

Both the NCATE Blue Ribbon Panel on Clinical Preparation and Partnerships for Improved Student Learning (2010) and AACTE’s Clinical Practice Commission (2017) argue the most effective way to develop strong pedagogical skills in teachers is by ensuring their programs are “grounded in clinical practice.” The College of Education at Towson University is committed to providing teacher candidates meaningful and scaffolded clinical opportunities to build their skills in the most essential areas for practice.
