Field Experiences

Fall 2020 Field Experiences

In typical semesters, TC students enrolled in New York State certification and licensure programs engage with in-person student teaching placements and field experiences within a wide range of settings, from NYC-area public schools to hospital clinics.  The fall 2020 semester will be different in many ways, but TC is as committed as ever to providing students with access to safe, meaningful, and flexible field placement experiences as they prepare for their chosen careers.   Our Fall 2020 Field Experience Handbook and Tool Kit provides details, protocols, and safety measures for the following key policies:

  • Many students will be able to engage with field placements remotely during the fall 2020 semester.  
  • We anticipate that in-person field placements will also be allowable for interested students, provided that field sites are open to hosting graduate student guests, meet TC’s longstanding and rigorous criteria for placement selection, and adhere to TC’s new standards for field site COVID-19 compliance.  
  • No student will be required to enter a field site that they feel is unsafe for them; accommodations, modifications, and other supports will be available to students with concerns. 
  • All students with fall 2020 field placements will have new requirements to meet prior to engaging with the field, such as completion of the TC COVID-19 Training.

All fall 2020 field experience students and TC field experience coordinators are required to use the Fall 2020 Field Experience Handbook and Tools as they prepare for and navigate the challenges of a dynamic fall 2020 semester.
