This study was conducted to assess the implementation of the Field Study courses of the College of Education of Baliuag University in collaboration with the Department of Education-Cooperating Schools. A descriptive method of research was utilized with questionnaire as the data gathering tool, patterned after the questionnaire of the Philippine Association for Teacher Education. This study utilized the descriptive-quantitative survey to determine the implementation of the Field Study Courses in collaboration with selected public cooperating elementary and secondary schools. Target cooperating schools included Mariano Ponce National High School, Virgen delas Flores High School, Baliuag South Central School, Baliuag North Central School and San Jose Elementary School. Five principals and 20 cooperating teachers/resource persons participated in the study. Based on the suggestions of the field study resource persons, the implementation of the Field Study Courses can be better enhanced by improving the implementation procedure. The continuous use of resource materials from the Teacher Education Council, Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education- Experiential Learning Handbook, PAFTE Experiential Learning Handbook and some institutionally crafted FS Guides/Handbooks was also suggested.
