YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) and the Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Education (Superintendent LIM Jong-sik) have signed a business agreement to create a foundation for the operation of a mutually cooperative School Field Practice Semester System.

 The agreement ceremony, held at the Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Education on the 19th, was attended by Dean CHO Sung-eun of YU's College of Education, as well as officials from Andong National University, Daegu Catholic University, Daegu University, and the Gyeongsangbuk-do Office of Education. Through the agreement, the five organizations agreed to cooperate on ▲ reorganizing the curriculum to apply the school field semester system ▲ supporting participating students ▲ 'collaborating with Office of Education and teacher training institutions' and 'researching and operating a localized operation model and council' ▲ and supporting satisfaction surveys for monitoring the pilot operation sites.

The School Field Practice Semester System is a teacher training curriculum that allows prospective teachers to experience various practical tasks such as curriculum, teaching, assessment, life guidance, and counseling for one semester separately from the existing four-week teaching practice to further strengthen their competence in the school field, aiming to be fully implemented in 2028. 

In the second semester of the 2023 academic year, three students from YU's College of Education and Graduate School of Education participated in the pilot project of the ‘School Field Practice Semester for Preparatory Teachers’ held at Gyeongsan Sadong Middle School (Principal YEO Sung-dong) for 15 weeks, using the university's own budget for the first time in Gyeongsangbuk-do, to strengthen the school field capabilities of pre-service teachers. In the first semester of 2024, three fourth-year students from the Department of English Education and the Department of Mathematics Education at the College of Education are participating in the 'School Field Practice Semester for Preparatory Teachers' at Gyeongsan Girls' Middle School (Principal CHOI Bo-yong) with the support of the Ministry of Education. They spend three days of the week practicing supporting various educational activities at Gyeongsan Girls' Middle School, and the remaining two days at the university for curriculum and theory classes. 

Professor CHO Sung-eun, Dean of YU's College of Education and Dean of the Graduate School of Education, and Chairman of the National Council of Presidents of Private Colleges and Universities, said, "College of Education and Graduate School of Education are facing a period of change in terms of decreasing enrollment resources and improving the teacher training system. YU's College of Education and Graduate School of Education will do its best to foster human resources with transformative capabilities suitable for school sites."
