Faced with the rapid growth of online education, FLVS, the leader in online learning, realized its professional obligation and decided to open its doors in an effort to help preservice candidates prepare for the 21st century classroom. FLVS’ University Partnerships offers a wide variety of opportunities from hosting education majors for a virtual classroom observation, a school counseling internship to a fully immersed clinical experience.
In spring 2009, FLVS established its first university partnership with the University of Central Florida. What began as a small seven-week pilot with six junior level interns has developed into an open-access field experience available to junior, senior and graduate level interns.
