Practicum at OUCDC

Each semester, practicum students from Early Childhood Education classes in the Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education will have lab experiences at the Child Development Center. Most of the students will complete a two hour lab twice a week. Others may only come once or twice for an observation. Each Master Teacher will be given a copy of the requirements by the course instructor for practicum students at the start of the semester. Teachers are expected to:

  • Share classroom/center rules
  • Supervise the lab student at all time 
  • Make the lab student feel welcome
  • Introduce the lab student to the young children
  • Treat the lab student with respect
  • Evaluate the student as needed
