Students in the Library Media Program have different types of portfolios that they are required to create, depending on the final degree or license that they are working towards.
The following are the possible portfolios:
Students seeking 1902 licensure either as an initial or add-on license will be required to create a library media capstone portfolio at the conclusion of the program. This will focus on the library media program competencies and can include artifacts from courses, student teaching or practicum, or from professional practice.
Capstone portfolios will be evaluated once a semester, within one month after the end of the semester. By the end of the practicum or student teaching experience, the student will submit a capstone portfolio to the library media faculty.
The portfolio should be arranged by these categories and should include both practicum projects and artifacts from library coursework to demonstrate the 1902 competencies.
The library media faculty will evaluate the capstone portfolio:
Other portfolios will be part of the Capstone Portfolio. These may be included as a page or pages of the Capstone Portfolio. Or they may be on their own site and linked to the Capstone Portfolio.
The practicum portfolio should be arranged in the following categories with possible additional sections.
For students working toward their initial teaching license, each will create a portfolio demonstrating achievement of the ten Wisconsin Teacher Standards. This portfolio will be assessed after
Each student will select artifacts and reflect on their achievement of the core knowledge, skills and dispositions. These first two assessments will be completed by teacher education faculty.
As the student goes on to add materials from their library media courses, this portfolio will become the Capstone Portfolio.
Many of our add-on and initial license students begin the program with prior coursework and experiences that cover program competencies. To acknowledge this prior knowledge, students may submit a competency review demonstrating how prior coursework and/or experiences meet the competencies of courses in the program. This can be done for three of the courses:
