The Portfolio

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires all candidates in professional education programs to develop a portfolio as part of a completion requirement. These professional educators include: teachers, reading specialists; library media specialists; speech/language pathologists; school or district administrators; school psychologists; school counselors; and school social workers.

This e-portfolio can be shared instantaneously with professors, classmates, and groups for assessment and collaboration. It is designed to be a developmental process for you and allow you opportunity to reflect on your knowledge, skills, and experiences as you move through the program. Students beginning the program in 2011 will use the platform provided in D2L to develop and maintain your portfolio. Students admitted prior to 2011 may use the LIVETEXT platform if they choose to do so.

NOTE: Upon completion of coursework required for licensure, all applicants must complete and submit for review an e-portfolio detailing their competencies of the UWM core guiding principles and the UWM-WI state standards for administrators. Portfolios will be evaluated by two members of the administration faculty during the final semester of the candidate's program.
