Capstone Education Society Board of Directors
The Capstone Education Society is an alumni association at The University of Alabama and is an affiliate organization of the Capstone Foundation. It was established in 1974 as a not-for-profit organization to provide a means by which alumni and friends could support the efforts of the College of Education at The University of Alabama. The Society supports the College of Education as it strives to produce first-rate, nationally recognized programs, the highest academic standard among its students, and excellence at all levels of education throughout the State of Alabama and the nation.
Clinical Experiences Advisory Committee
The purpose of the Clinical Experiences Advisory Committee (CEAC) is to advise the Director of Field Experiences on policies and procedures related to undergraduate and graduate clinical experiences and teaching internships. The committee reviews and recommends clinical experiences policies and procedures concerning the placement and evaluation of students in clinical experiences and student teaching; identifies and addresses issues and concerns between the schools and the College of Education; assists in the planning and implementation of new ideas, policies and procedures related to the structure, coordination, and evaluation of clinical experiences and teaching internship placements; and provides input for the orientation of cooperating teachers and Clinical Master Teachers each year.
Clinical Master Teachers
The Clinical Master Teacher (CMT) Program began in 1990 and has expanded each year since. CMTs are specially selected elementary, middle, and secondary school teachers. They are unique because they combine the roles of the college supervisor and the cooperating teacher, together as a team. CMTs are appointed in teams consisting of four to six members to cooperatively supervise teacher interns. While one CMT has primary responsibility for a teacher intern, all CMTs on the team observe the teacher intern, critique the teacher intern, and coach each other in how to work with the teacher intern. A college supervisor is not assigned to observe teacher interns assigned to a CMT. Rather, a designated College of Education faculty member works with CMTs to support their efforts with teacher interns. CMTs are appointed as adjunct faculty to the College of Education and are considered school-based faculty. Over the years, many former CMTs have taken administrative positions within their school district and several retired CMTs have served as University Internship Supervisors. They are entitled to University benefits awarded to adjunct faculty.
