Winthrop University: Supplemental Education Experience

Supplemental Education Experience

SEE logoEducators are expected to engage in professional learning throughout their careers. To mirror such experiences, teacher education students are expected to complete Supplemental Education Experiences (SEE) before graduation and maintain a record of certificates awarded.

    Teacher education students must complete a total of six credits. Two from each category are required. The college will offer multiple options per semester and students will receive an emailed certificate that must be submitted durng the Internship II semester through a Via assignment.

    If a student attends an event not sponsored by the college, they must complete the petition process outlined below to request review.

      This category is focused on allowing students to explore topics from coursework on diverse learners further. Sessions will focus on a variety of diversities to include but not limited to multilingual students, racial diversity, academic differences, and cultural differences. Students are highly encouraged to attend one of the sessions on Individualized Education Program.

      Sessions in this category are intended to allow teacher candidates to explore the social emotional aspects of schooling. Topics include but are not limited to mandatory reporter training, Darkness to Light training, mental health explorations, and role of trauma in child development.

      This category is intended to allow teacher candidates to explore a variety of topics of interest to them specifically. Examples might include a mock interview, participation in a conference, and subject-specific professional development offered through programs or our P12 partner.


    Teacher Candidates are encouraged to consider events and opportunites off campus as well as those sponsored by the College of Education. Use the forms below to request consideration.
