Viewpoint: IS THE PRACTICUM PRACTICAL? THE EXAGGERATED EMPHASIS ON STUDENT TEACHING IN HIGHER EDUCATION
AbstractVirtually everyone I have known in education thinks the most important and relevant part of teacher education is student teaching, or the practicum. It is one of those unquestioned orthodoxies in our profession. When it comes to the conventional wisdom of modern educators, however, I tend to be an infidel; I think the emphasis on the practicum is exaggerated and ultimately misguided.
