University Supervisor 

The university supervisor has developed a syllabus for the student teaching course and seminar course that outlines performance expectations for their student teacher. This professional is the performance assessment expert and will evaluate how the candidate responds to their teaching opportunities and expectations.

UW Oshkosh supervisors visit the student in their placements several times during the course of the field experience to observe and evaluate the student’s performance. This professional also facilitates Triad Meetings with the cooperating teacher and student to ensure open communication regarding university and DPI expectations. 
 
Each University Supervisor facilitates small group seminar meetings on a periodic basis during the student teaching semester. This is an opportunity for candidates to discuss, in a supportive and focused environment, successes, failures, licensure questions and other issues that emerge during the course of their capstone field experience. The University Supervisor assigns final grades for both the student teaching performance (Pass/Fail) and for the accompanying seminar (letter grade). 
 
A strong professional relationship between a student teacher and Supervisor is strategic to the student’s growth and development as a professional educator.
