Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  2. examine an innovative approach to provide graduate students with applied learning opportunities.
  3. develop mutually beneficial partnerships between graduate training programs and local school systems.


What happens when we cross the line between the classroom and the field? This session will present a collaborative model for training school psychology graduate students that connects theory to practice by incorporating field-based learning experiences into didactic classes. The presenter will discuss how establishing partnerships with local school districts enables University faculty to remain engaged with current practice, provide experiential learning opportunities to their students, and provide service to their local district.
