Field Trips to Local Schools

​For undergraduates who have attended our Celebration of Teaching Events, we plan to organize field trips to local schools for early structured field experiences.  We would bring them to classrooms with teachers who model high impact practices (e.g. eliciting student thinking) to complete structured observations.  We would end the field trips with a guided reflection on the observation.

Wide Advertising to Recruit Credential Candidates

​CSUDH utilizes a massive public-facing electronic sign situated on the corner of campus in a very high-traffic intersection that invites anyone interested in a career in education to attend our monthly information sessions.  This is the broad funnel that brings many from outside the university's walls into our pipeline.
