Pre-professional Days activities are related to requirements for Admission to the School of Education and to the professional development of prospective teachers.

Admission Portfolio Assessment

All education students are required to complete an admission portfolio that addresses two Wisconsin teaching standards and present it to a team of two faculty members during Pre-Professional Days.  Pre-Professional Days is held once a semester, October and March.

Candidates being assessed MUST bring the hard copy of their portfolios with them to the assessment session. The application period begins on Monday, February 10 at 8:00 a.m. and ends on Monday, February 24 at 8:00 a.m. After the sign up deadline has passed, contact David Chellevold at or 608.342.1065 if you have questions. Note: Please understand there are no guarantees and there is little chance for an assessment time after the registration deadline.

Freshmen are NOT eligible for an Admission Portfolio assessment unless they have successfully completed Introduction to Education or Introduction to Physical Education.

Professional Development Sessions

The School of Education invites several local educators, administrators, UW-Platteville alumni  and faculty members to present  on many current education topics. All education students will be required to attend several of the Professional Development Sessions for their education classes. Some examples of topics are My Experiences as a Beginning Teacher, Study Abroad Opportunities, and Working with Students with Special Needs in Your Classroom.
