Few would disagree that clinical experience is critical for teacher development. Teaching is, after all, a demanding clinical practice, requiring teachers to orchestrate complex classroom interactions designed to help children learn.

Clinical experiences during professional education provide opportunities for teachers to develop and hone their craft.
