The practicum requires that the participant organize a supervised professional activity in the field of adult education. Participants will submit a proposal to the program chair. The proposal will identify the skills to be developed and evaluated. Within program guidelines, the participant will select a supervisor and will schedule a 45-hour practicum that includes observation, co-teaching, solo teaching and evaluation sessions. At the conclusion of the practicum, the participant will submit a portfolio documenting his or her learning experience. In the portfolio should be the approved proposal; a schedule of activities carried out; progress reports on growth in meeting objectives; formative and summative evaluation by learners, self and supervisor; and a reflective paper on the content and process of the practicum experience. Those wishing to challenge the practicum requirement may submit, to the program chair, a portfolio containing a resume, a recent performance evaluation, letters of reference, and a narrative report of adult education experience and the impact of the Certificate in Adult Education program on their practice.
