Field Experience is viewed as central to our education programmes at the EdUHK, because it:
provides student teachers with the opportunity for socialistion into the profession.
facilitates the creation of a learning community in which student teachers, supporting teachers and EdUHK supervisors can learn together and so mutually enhance their professional development.
gives student teachers the opportunity to develop and ultimately to demonstrate their competence and readiness to enter the profession.
encourages student teachers to innovate and reflect on their practice within a supportive environment as part of their professional development process.
places student teachers in schools which are important sites for learning to teach and where they interpret, generate, interact and experiment with theory.
