Education Seminar with Field Hours

Eastern University College of Education and Behavioral Sciences

CRSE Competencies 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8

Course Description

This course will enable students to critically examine the major issues in education such as curriculum development, instructional methods, instructional strategy development, assessment, classroom management, and program/unit development (110 field experience hours). There is an additional component of 110 field experience hours required in this course.

Why was this course your focus?

“The course that I revised is ‘Education Seminar with Field Experience’ – it is the pre-student teaching course for our teacher certification candidates and the capstone course for our Early Childhood Studies students. The course requires students to complete 110 field hours and teach a total of six lessons. The primary focus of the course is to allow students to reflect on and process their field experience as they apply what they have learned throughout their education program. I selected this course because it is one that I teach both Fall and Spring Semesters and because it is a required course. The other course that I teach consistently (Multicultural Education) is an elective course/general education option and was recently revised to meet CRSE competencies. Furthermore, I wanted to be able to demonstrate to colleagues that this content can be applied in many different classes–sometimes the depth of study available in a Multicultural Education course is not feasible in every course but that does not mean that the course cannot adopt a CRSE Lens.”


These artifacts showcase a range of course assignments and rubrics, including those involving interviews with mentor teachers, creation of lesson plans, and classroom observations.
