Add-On Program Courses

These courses are designed specifically for the Center for Additional Teaching Licenses Program.

Compacted Courses

Early Childhood - Middle Childhood

There are 3 compacted Early Childhood courses  (7 credits) available to our EC-MC license candidates in lieu of the typical, undergraduate 7 Early Childhood block courses (14 credits). Two of these courses (6 credits) are offered back-to-back in a hybrid format during the summer with the remaining course/credit offered in a hybrid format during the fall.

 

Early Childhood - Middle Childhood/Middle Childhood - Early Adolescence

There are 2 compacted Advanced Methods' courses (6 credits) available to our EC-MC and MC-EA candidates in lieu of the typical, undergraduate 8 methods courses (21 credits). These courses are interdependent and are taught in a hybrid fashion on a fall/spring rotation.

 

Music Education

There are two compacted courses offered for candidates seeking to add music licensure.  Each is offered on campus in a two-week summer workshop format:

Choral Music Methods, Pedagogy, and Techniques

A 5-credit course for practicing Wisconsin music educators currently licensed in instrumental or general music and pursuing choral licensure. Participants refine competencies associated with exceptional choral conducting, rehearsal techniques, instructional methods, and vocal pedagogy in the PK-12 choral setting. Progressive techniques for developing independent musicianship and music literacy are practiced and assessed within the context of music content standards.

General Music Methods, Pedagogy, and Techniques

A 5-credit course for practicing Wisconsin music educators currently licensed in choral or instrumental music and pursuing general music licensure. Participants refine competencies associated with exceptional teaching in PK-12 classroom music. Introductory experiences in the approaches of Kodály, Orff, Dalcroze, and Gordon, plus integrated use of classroom instruments, the voice, piano, guitar, and recorder are practiced. Curriculum development and assessment, early childhood music, adaptive techniques for exceptional learners, student composition, and technology integration in general music are also addressed.

Mischler

While staying home with my children, I looked for an Add On Licensure Program that would be flexible and meet my needs. UW Oshkosh’s EXCEL Center has exceeded my expectations and proved to be an amazing experience for me and my family.  I was able to take most of the classes on-line and find school placements that fit with my schedule. The staff went above and beyond to answer any questions, give me options, and help me find the classes I needed to take outside of UW-Oshkosh. Outstanding job EXCEL Center!
