Vision

The vision of Capella’s professional education unit is to lead the definition of high quality adult online education for learners who are, or will become, leaders, teachers, practitioners, and other professional educators in the rapidly changing demographic landscape of the nation’s P-12 schools. The unit strives to deliver superior learning outcomes and a superior learning experience focused on the university values of our learners, human potential, achievement, decisive collaboration, innovation, and integrity.

Mission

Consistent with the institutional mission of Capella University, the mission of Capella’s professional education unit is to provide innovative, competency-based learning experiences that deliver immediate, profound, professional impact and that empower learners to distinguish themselves through contributions to the thinking and development of the organizations they serve. Learners in the unit prepare for the challenges, opportunities, and demands of today’s P-12 schools. As a result of this commitment to relevant and high quality preparation of learners, academic programs in the unit engage in a continuous process of creating and improving courses of study that closely align with research-based competency standards.

Scholar-Practitioner Model

Consistent with the educational philosophy of Capella University, faculty in the professional education unit are committed to a scholar-practitioner model for the preparation and continuing education of P-12 teachers, administrators, counselors, and school psychologists. This approach to learning incorporates theoretical knowledge and authentic professional experiences in P-12 schools. Depending on their degree level, learners are expected to synthesize scholarship with practical application on a continuum from practitioner to scholar. Candidates in master’s degree programs are expected to be practitioner-scholars; candidates in doctoral degree programs are expected to be scholar-practitioners.

Compensation for Fieldwork

Since fieldwork is a part of a learner’s educational program, learners cannot be paid for their direct client contact hours at their fieldwork site. They may receive a stipend for other services they provide at the site. This stipend is to be worked out between the learner and the site, with the specific arrangements forwarded (with the other application materials) to the School of Human Services: CE Support for approval by the Clinical Director.

  • Interns CANNOT be paid for their clinical work during their academic fieldwork experiences.

  • It is a requirement of the fieldwork experience that the intern be able to audio or video record at least one session per quarter.

  • The session tape is used for training purposes; the intern will transcribe and annotate a portion of the tape for their final course project.

  • Session tapes should never leave the site; therefore, the transcription of the tape must be completed on site.

  • If your agency does not permit taping of any kind, discuss with your intern an alternative site where they will be able to meet this requirement.

    Definition of Clinical Hours

    • Total Hours: the sum of direct, non-direct, and individual supervision hours

    • Direct Contact Hours: time wherein the intern is directly interacting with clients, not just observing. Co-therapy and co-facilitation of groups is counted. It is expected the learner will progress to independently or primarily acting as therapist for cases toward the end of practicum

    • Non-Direct Hours: all activities on site that are not supervision or direct contact with clients. Could include note writing, staff meetings, research, etc.

    • Individual Supervision with Site Supervisor: one-to-one or two-to-one supervision with the licensed and approved supervisor

    • Other: Additional types of supervision and staff meetings as offered or required by your site are welcome, but will not meet the requirement for individual or triadic supervision.


    Field experience clinical practice orientation15

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Paperwork

    Interns are responsible for a variety of fieldwork documents.

    Weekly Activity Logs

    • Learners document hours spent in clinical activities onsite

    • Site supervisor’s signature is required on each Weekly Activity Log as verification of hours logged.

    • Intern submits Weekly Activity Logs to Fieldwork Faculty Supervisor by efax or scan.

      Interns are responsible for submitting all required fieldwork paperwork to their Fieldwork Faculty Supervisor (Weekly Activity Logs and the Site Supervisor Evaluation of Learner.)


    Field experience clinical practice orientation16

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Sample day for Direct Activities

    SC: Direct contact can be individual & group counseling, parent & teacher consultation, and classroom guidance. These modalities are separated out, but no specific minimums are required.


    Field experience clinical practice orientation17

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Sample day for Non-Direct activities with clients

    • 11 identified activities accounted for in 15 minute increments

    • For example, in an 7 hour day:

    • two hours might be devoted to meetings

    • two hours to report writing/case notes, an hour of tape review, and

    • two hours of education,

    • one hour in a training

    • one hour in supervision.


    Field experience clinical practice orientation18

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Sample Totals Section of Weekly Activity Log

    Site supervisor’s signature on the time log attests that the intern completed the hours as listed.

    Interns are required to submit their Weekly Activity Log every two weeks to ensure they are staying on track to finish their hours on time.


    Field experience clinical practice orientation19

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Moving on to Internship

    The differences between the practicum and internship are related to number of hours and intensity of the work.

    • Internship requires the learner to be on site an average of 25 hours per week, and providing an average of 10 hours of direct contact

    • Onsite supervision remains at one hour per week

    • Expectations of the intern should rise with each subsequent quarter, preparing the learner to function as a full time therapist by graduation


    Field experience clinical practice orientation20

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    How long will the intern be at the site?

    • The practicum and two internship experiences are typically 36 weeks in length.

    • Most interns remain at one site for the entire experience while some will add or change sites for variety of reasons

    • Some interns will extend their experience an additional 13 weeks for a third internship depending on state licensure needs and life circumstances

    • A very few interns will spend additional time in their internship experience beyond 49 weeks.

    • Regular discussion with the intern will help to determine what they and you need to do to assist timely completion of hours.

    • A revised Placement Agreement will be required for extensions beyond the initial Placement Agreement in order to accurately represent the revised termination date.


    Field experience clinical practice orientation21

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Intern Responsibilities and Grading

    Interns are responsible for returning all paperwork ( all Weekly Activity Logs and the Site Supervisor Evaluation of Learner) to their Fieldwork Faculty Supervisor

    • The site supervisor evaluation accounts for 25% of the intern’s grade

    • The media transcription also accounts for 25% of the grade


    Field experience clinical practice orientation22

    Field Experience & Clinical Practice Orientation

    Other Information

    • Monitoring Progress: Although the faculty monitor the attitudes, readiness, and skills of each learner with every contact, issues may still arise that are unforeseen once the learner is directly challenged by the realities of the field. Please assess the intern at your site frequently and consult with the intern and faculty fieldwork supervisor often.

    • Liability Insurance ($1,000,000/$3,000,000) : Capella covers interns for their entire fieldwork experience. If a copy of the certificate is required, the intern must request one from the Capella finance office.

    • Site Supervisor Clinical Role: The site supervisor’s decisions for clinical cases on site will prevail.

    • Non-direct hours at the site are activities for the development of the intern as a clinician.
