New Director of Professional Development and Field Experiences

Dr. Kathryn Ricketts

Congratulations to Dr. Kathryn Ricketts, who has agreed to assume the role of Director of the Professional Development and Field Experiences as of July 1, 2020 for a 3-year term.

In-school Field Experiences have been a defining feature of our Faculty since its inception. Each program in the faculty contains at least three major practicum experiences. The first-year practicum experience is an introduction to schools, an exploration of the various roles in education. More extensive development occurs in the pre-internship year. It is at this level that students experience the link between theory and practice since education courses over two semesters are coordinated with the practicum. An intensive 16-week internship, under the daily supervision of a cooperating teacher, has over the years become the ‘flagship’ of the Faculty of Education. The two-day Internship Seminar for cooperating teachers and interns, which has a long history of strong support by the partners in education in Saskatchewan, is unique in Canada.
