Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Office of Clinical Experiences and Partnerships
Whether you are full-time faculty or are from our affiliate faculty pool, we appreciate the dedication and expertise you bring to the task of supervising MSU Denver’s student teachers. The combination of your on-site visits, conferences, and seminars provides the support and oversight necessary to the success of our candidates.
Please explore the links on the sidebar which will take you to forms needed for assessing the student teacher as well as information on procedures and mileage reimbursement.
The Student Teaching Handbook is updated each summer and provides more explanation regarding responsibilities and expectations.
We encourage you to become acquainted with the content of the student and coop teacher pages so you can help facilitate discussion and answer questions that you may encounter during supervision.
If you need directions to campus locations, you can check the Campus/Parking Map.
Please submit all Observation, Midterm, and Final Reports through Qualtrics.
Individual links for each form will be emailed to you at the beginning of the semester. If you lose your email, please email us at [email protected] and we will re-send you your specific link.
