In some circumstances, teaching on a license for conditional assignment may replace the practicum requirement. Permission of advisor and Director of the School of Learning and Teaching is required to waive the practicum. As a part of the practicum requirement, the candidate will prepare and teach one unit of study (typically 8-10 lessons).
