Professional field experiences leading up to student teaching are not isolated add-ons, but are integrated into many courses throughout the teacher preparation program and are, therefore, most often supervised by full-time highly qualified Glocal faculty rather than temporary adjuncts or graduate students. The faculty who are teaching the courses work with the students as they transfer their knowledge to the actual classroom.FACULTY SUPERVISED AND INTEGRATED FIELD EXPERIENCES

B.Ed students batch (2016-18) of Faculty of Education, Glocal University visited Anganwadi at Badshahibagh. In their field visit, they observed that Anganwadi provides nutritional supplements and immunisation (polio,tetanus,measles and tuberculosis) vaccines for children. There is no set curriculum at Anganwadi although the caretaker teaches the children about health and hygiene. B.Ed students noticed that the Anganwadi center focuses a lot on nutrition in which children are weighed every month and their growth is recorded. If a child seems to be malnourished, they are given twice the nutritional supplements. It was a good experience in an authentic setting of Anganwadi that B.Ed students cannot imitiate within the college or school.
