2019 Clinical Practice Fellow Symposium
Deadline to apply to be a Clinical Practice Fellow is September 1, 2018.
Are you interested in clinical practice?
Come be a part of a community of educators who are interested in solving real issues and challenges related to developing school-university partnerships and integrating clinical practice as part of educator preparation programs. You are encouraged to apply to be a Clinical Practice Fellow at the 2019 ATE Annual Meeting!
Who are Clinical Practice Fellows?
What do Clinical Practice Fellows do?
ATE Clinical Practice Fellows are a group of teacher educators, PK-12 school personnel, and clinical field coordinators who have a strong research interest in clinical practice. Clinical Practice Fellows are selected through a competitive application process.
Clinical Practice Fellows attend a national pre-conference symposium at ATE beginning the evening of Saturday, February 16th, 2019, and ending by noon on Monday, February 18th, 2019. During the Clinical Practice Fellows symposium, Clinical Fellows and their partners network with one another, share research interests, and hear from some of the top scholars in clinical practice as they engage in a national dialogue about “turning teacher education upside down” and putting clinical practice at the center of teacher education!
What is the theme of 2019 Clinical Practice Fellows?
This year’s Clinical Fellows Symposium theme, Re-Imagining Clinically-Based Teacher Education Programs, will be action-oriented and designed to bring clinical fellows together to work on challenges they face in their context. Together, we can re-think the nature of our clinical practices, re-imagine the link between methods and clinical experiences, and re-conceive authentic, sustainable partnerships that support rich clinical experiences.

We welcome and encourage past clinical fellows to participate and share their work from the previous year. Former clinical fellows should submit their intent to attend the 2019 Clinical Fellows Symposium by completing this form.
New Clinical Fellows
We invite teacher educators in all stages of their careers to participate. We especially encourage doctoral students, early career faculty members, and University clinical field coordinators to apply. We strongly encourage all Clinical Fellows to bring a school-based teacher educator (mentor teacher, principal, teacher leader, etc.) to the conference to serve as a “thought-partner” throughout the symposium and conference activities. You are encouraged to explore funding for a Clinical Practice Partner through your dean’s office.
For new clinical fellows, the application process is competitive, but simple. Your application will be reviewed along with proposals for the conference and you will be notified by October 1 of your acceptance.
