The University of Wisconsin System School Library Education Consortium (UWSSLEC) combines the strengths of faculty in programs at Whitewater, Madison, Eau Claire, Superior and Oshkosh to teach strong skills in information organization, curriculum, technology application and integration, literature, management, and leadership to teachers interested in becoming school library information specialists.
Alternative education specialists work with school districts to develop programs for "last chance" students, including jail or detentions-based education, credit acceleration, behavior-focused programs, or simply the opportunity to come back to school and graduate. To assist teachers in recognizing and developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to work in alternative education, the Curriculum & Instruction Department at UW-Whitewater offers a sequence of courses leading to the Alternative Education (952) license.
