- About Us
Educator preparation advising is a collaborative process. The advisor and student work as a team to develop a successful advisor/advisee relationship. Both the advisor and the student have important responsibilities in developing and maintaining this teamwork. The educator preparation advisor is responsible for meeting with the student as soon as possible. The advisor will determine what other team members should be assigned to the advising team based on the teacher candidates’ chosen major and/or pathway. All admitted UW‐Parkside teacher candidates, in good standing, can indicate their intent to enter the educator preparation program by declaring their plan with the educator preparation program advisor in IPED by filling out a plan declaration form. Advising each semester is mandatory in this program.
IMPORTANT: All students must meet with the Educator Preparation Advisor for curricular and program requirement. Advising from anyone but the Educator Preparation advisor will not be deemed official for the EDU program. Rules and regulations for the EDU program change often by the State of Wisconsin and any other source of advising cannot be guaranteed to be correct.
