Abstract
The pilot internship program discussed in this paper was developed to address research in the cross-section of internships and school district/university partnerships and share a model that meets the need for university professors - in partnership with the districts that they serve - to implement a program that meets the educational leadership department’s and school district’s perceived and prescribed needs. The purpose of this study was to examine through the use of quantitative and qualitative methods, educational leadership certification students completing a pilot internship program that was co-developed, co-taught, and co-assessed in tandem by partners from the university and school district. The internship required 500 field hours and ran three contiguous semesters. This internship was in place of the traditional internship, a capstone course, one semester, developed in isolation by faculty only, and required only 100 field hours. Findings demonstrate the significantly different experiential and learning outcomes from students in the pilot internship when compared to those who experienced the traditional internship in the areas of on-site mentoring, classroom experience, knowledge acquisition related to educational management and leadership theory, and overall preparedness for assuming school leadership positions.
