Become a 2019 Clinical Practice Fellow


Dear NAPDS Members and Friends:


NAPDS and the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) have teamed up over the past few years to create a national symposium on clinical practice. In 2019, NAPDS and ATE will have back-to-back conferences in Atlanta, Georgia, and the 2019 Clinical Practice Fellow Symposium will take place during the weekend between the two conferences.


Clinical Practice Fellows are a group of school- and university- teacher educators who have a strong interest in clinical practice. We especially encourage mentor teachers, principals, teacher leaders, doctoral students, early career faculty members, and PDS directors, liaisons, and coordinators to apply. Clinical Practice Fellows are strongly encouraged to come in pairs of P-12 and university partners or in teams of similar representation, with each team member submitting an individual application.


Clinical Practice Fellows are selected through a competitive application process. Please visit the 2019 Clinical Practice Fellow Symposium webpage for more information about Clinical Practice Fellows and how to apply. The deadline for application is October 1, 2018. We invite you to submit an application!
