This practicum/internship and clinical and student teaching page is meant to assist external constituents (cooperating teachers, site supervisor, mentors, etc) as well as NEIU users (university supervisor and students).

NEIU utilizes Student Learning and Licensure (commonly referred to as SL&L) for managing its practicum and internship experiences.

Some basic information that applies to all the areas is listed below.

Accessing Student learning & licensure (SL&L)

University Students

Students access SL&L by using the link found in their D2L course within a module in the Content section. This link will allow them to complete all required program activities such as logging time, completing and reviewing evaluations completed by others, and submitting key assessments. Do not use the NEIUport link as a student.

University Supervisors (employed by NEIU)

University supervisors can access SL&L by using the D2L similar to your students, or you can access as well through the button within NEIUport called Watermark, then Student Learning and Licensure tile from Navigator screen. Once within the SL&L course you will be able review time log entries, approve time entries, complete and review evaluations and assess key assessments.

External Constituents (non-NEIU employees)

As previously stated, an external constituent has various titles including (but not limited to) cooperating teacher, mentor, site supervisor, etc. Access for external individuals is provided via automatic system generated email from This email must be saved as it will be referenced or utilized the entire semester.
