On-Site Courses Information

What are on-site courses?

UGA faculty and graduate students teach their courses on-site at schools to provide teacher candidates with clinically-rich experiences that give them opportunities to engage in authentic learning with professional educators and preK-12 students. On-site courses are designed to be mutually beneficial for school partners as well as UGA students. Each course is uniquely designed to meet the needs of a particular school as well as the UGA course’s learning objectives.
