Clinical instructors are accomplished, practicing teachers who host and guide our residents during half-year placements in their classrooms. They are members of a select and vitally important community of teacher leaders who are instrumental in preparing the next generation of excellent educators for Chicago Public Schools.
Clinical instructors participate in seminars during the terms they host UChicago UTEP residents. They practice observing instruction, providing constructive feedback, and documenting meaningful observations. In this way, clinical instructors not only become more effective teachers of residents, but also further their own professional practice.
