Welcome to the University of Florida Music Education Online Portfolio Website

All University of Florida music education majors must complete a web-based music teaching portfolio as an exit requirement for graduation. In their portfolios, students present evidence of their teaching knowledge, skills, and dispositions in the form of illustrations of the twelve Florida Accomplished Practices for Teachers. This evidence takes many forms – lesson/rehearsal plans, narratives, reflections, photos, audio and video clips, and more. 

The portfolios are developed over time. As students complete MUE 3311 - Music in Elementary Schools, MUE 3330 - Music in Secondary Schools, and MUE 4140/4940 – Administration and Student Teaching, they complete specific assignments that are developed into illustrations of the Florida Accomplished Practices.

Because the music education program is an affiliate program of the University of Florida College of Education, the project is fully aligned with the College of Education’s Educator Assessment System. In addition to providing students an opportunity to create and organize a professional online presence and meaningfully reflect on their work as pre-service teachers, the illustrations provided in the student portfolios serve as evidence of our program's compliance with National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and Florida Department of Education standards for teacher preparation.

Visitors are welcome to view the student portfolios – follow the link provided on the left of this page. Students will find portfolio templates, the manual, links to help files, and other useful information for portfolio development.

Thank you for visiting our site and for your interest in music teacher preparation at the University of Florida.
