About

The Information, Technology, and Libraries program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater enhances the professional development of those interested in becoming information and technology leaders in the schools.

Overview

The Information, Technology, and Libraries program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater is designed to prepare professionals who are well rounded in digital and information technology. It will allow them to complete most of the requirements for the initial school library media specialist license, or all of the requirements for the professional level license.

Applicants for admission to this emphasis area must hold or be eligible for a regular teaching license in the State of Wisconsin for teaching in a public school. Exceptions to this policy may be made by the program coordinator on a case-by-case basis.

Program Overview

Four MSE-PD emphasis areas, Art Education, Curriculum and Instruction, Health, Human Performance, and Recreation, and Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, are individualized based on the student’s own professional studies goals. These individualized emphases all consist of eighteen units planned with the advisor at the start of the program, often during CIGENRL/EDFOUND 723, the Issues seminar. The course work in other emphases, however, is based on specific licensure requirements set by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and may include up to twenty-four units. Students in these emphases may also need to complete requirements beyond their course work such as portfolios and examinations in order to obtain the licenses they seek. Whether for an individualized emphasis or for a prescribed one, students should meet with their advisors no later than the time of admission to map out a general program plan, including any licensure requirements.
