The Professional Development office is here to facilitate your observation or practice-based experience placements. The districts have asked that all the TWU placements go through our office to ensure that proper procedures are followed for observations. Students at districts without proper authorization can become a liability for the districts as well as TWU. Please help us honor the district’s request.

The final deadline for submitting requests is the third Thursday of the semester.  It is not recommended that you wait until that deadline because it can take 6-weeks to receive a confirmed placement after receipt of completed paperwork.  Final deadline for submitting requests:

Fall Semester – Thursday, September 10, 2015

Spring Semester – Thursday, February 4, 2016

Students are responsible for meeting the requirements of the instructor’s course deadline for submitting paperwork if it precedes the final deadline. All applications must be submitted by the final deadline above.

The links below will provide you with the application form and instructions. Read and follow application instructions carefully. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

  • Student Application
    Completed by a student participating in an individual practice-based experience
  • Course Application
    Completed by the professor when the entire class participates together in a practice-based experience. These are not submitted individually.
