Welcome to the Office of Field Based Preparation (OFBP)! The OFBP is responsible for developing, coordinating, implementing, and evaluating all phases of field experiences as defined by the individual programs in the College of Education. Field experiences provide a continuum of real life opportunities that enable candidates to acquire the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and competencies essential to their development as professional educators.

The OFBP provides a variety of field-based opportunities in which candidates in the various certification programs observe, assist, instruct, and /or conduct research in academic settings defined by their programs. These experiences help to bridge the gap between theory and practice by presenting the candidates with firsthand matriculation in sites that have been carefully selected and monitored by the College of Education faculty and staff.
