edTPA Support for Unaffiliated Candidates Webinar Series: A Guide to Completing edTPA

In partnership with Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE), the edTPA Support Team at Evaluation Systems will be hosting a series of webinars throughout the 2020–21 academic year for teacher candidates who are unaffiliated with an educator preparation program.

Please note all webinars are listed as Eastern Time and Pacific Time

Due to school closures in spring 2020, many teacher candidates were not able to complete edTPA in their clinical placement/internship and were offered a waiver to complete edTPA in the 2020–21 academic year. Other candidates are currently or were previously affiliated with an EPP that may not use edTPA, but they wish to complete it to meet licensing requirements in another state. To support these groups of teacher candidates, SCALE and Pearson are offering this webinar series. In each of these 60-minute webinars within the series, teacher candidates will receive guidance from how to get started to how to complete edTPA in various learning environments.

Candidates must be registered for edTPA to access the assessment materials (i.e., edTPA Handbook, templates, URLP, Academic Language handout) that are used to complete edTPA and will be reviewed during these webinars. Registration can be completed at edTPA.com.

The dates, topics, times, and registration information are listed below. Upon registering for the webinar series, candidates will receive information for how to join the webinar series. NOTE: The topics in the webinar series will be offered one week a month at two different times each day. Candidates should identify the week in which to join the webinar series that corresponds to when they will begin working on their edTPA portfolio.
