ESD-U Instructor (Elementary Education)

Program Field Supervisors

Field supervisors serve as an advocate and mentor for candidates as well as a ‘gatekeeper’ between the candidate and recommendation for certification. Field supervisors are assigned by the program and perform multiple observations throughout the candidate’s field experience. Based on the observations, the field supervisors provide real-time, applicable feedback to the candidate regarding performance relating to teacher role standards and ESD-U program outcomes, and provides documents and evaluation for the program.

Seminar Leaders

Seminar leaders are chosen based on their content area expertise and are evaluated and hired annually. Seminar leaders are required to create and present their own content (unless other arrangements are made with program staff) and facilitate seminar learning at the date and time established by the program. They will also review candidate feedback and facilitate conversation regarding seminar improvement. Seminar leaders may teach up to 12 clock hours in one academic year without going through the full faculty application and hiring process. Teaching additional clock hours beyond twelve will require a formal faculty application.

Training Providers

ESD-U provides multiple trainings throughout the year, including faculty development sessions for ESD-U instructors, trainings for active teachers, and Fundamental Course of Study courses for paraeducators. Educational professionals, especially those with expertise in diversity, equity, and inclusion, classroom management, behavior management, educational law, and adult education, who are interested in being considered as a training provider may indicate their interest by completing the speaker interest form.
