UW-La Crosse requires student teachers to attend 7 on-campus seminars during their student teaching
semester. Six of these are scheduled for Wednesday evenings and address six different topics/issues each night.
The seventh seminar is a presentation by our Career Services Office. Our student teachers must also attend a
pre-student teaching seminar and a program evaluation session at the end of their experience. Interns and out-of-area
student teachers are not required to attend the six on-campus seminars but must complete the research assignments stipulated for each.
Our in-area student teaching "region" is incorporated into a fifty mile radius around La Crosse.

Subject: Re: [WSMTE] Fwd: Student teaching seminar question
UW Oshkosh has 3 large group seminar meetings for all student
teachers, two of which are on afternoons that require students to miss
a half day of student teaching. We also require seven, evening small-
group seminar meetings which are organized by the supervisors. In
music, all the clinical students and student teachers meet together
for this. Student teachers who have an out-of-area, on-the-job,
urban, or tribal placement are required to attend the large group
seminars on campus, but they attend small group seminars with their
supervising teacher in whatever format the supervisor requires.
Interns attend all seminars unless they are also out-of-area.
International or out-of-state student teachers, of course, get to miss
all but the first large-group seminar before school starts, but they
are still responsible for the work related to the large-group seminar.
