The internship is competency-based following the national Educational Leadership Consortium Council (ELCC) and Pennsylvania State standards. It constitutes 400 clock hours in an elementary or secondary school setting on a part-time basis. (This field experience will be opposite of the practicum.) The internship is completed in a different semester than the practicum and may be started upon completion of six (6) building level preparation EDL courses. The internship provides significant opportunities in the workplace to synthesize and apply the knowledge acquired during the coursework, and to practice and develop the skills identified in the academic program. It requires a variety of substantial in-school experiences over an extended period of time in diverse settings. The internship is planned cooperatively with on-site building level supervisors, and supervised by university and school personnel.
