Abstract: Discovering more about the experiences teacher candidates have during clinical teaching provides additional data Educator Preparation Programs (EPP) may use to improve the quality of learning experiences candidates have during their program and clinical teaching. Each semester, the WCOE conducts a wrap up meeting at the end of clinical teaching to provide additional job information and to provide an opportunity for gathering data related to candidates’ experiences. Google Drive provides a platform for collaboration and reflection among faculty mentors and clinical teachers. Google Docs becomes the primary tool by which candidate’s record and share thoughts related to their successes, challenges, needs and future professional development. Research findings and implications of how action research and classroom technologies can be used to make program improvements will be presented.
