edTPA 101 and Task-by-Task Deep Dives Webinar Series

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 for edTPA Community members.

Please see information below regarding webinar descriptions, dates and times the webinars will be offered, and information for how to join.

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

The intended audience for this webinar series is faculty, instructors, supervisors, and mentor teachers who support teacher candidates and who are new to edTPA. Those who wish to engage in a review of edTPA are also invited to attend.

This series will kick off with a 75-minute edTPA 101, which provides an overview of the purpose, development, and structure of edTPA. Participants will be able to identify what candidates provide as evidence for each of the edTPA tasks and engage in a review of the scoring process, score reports, and data reporting.

Each subsequent 75-minute session (2–5) guides participants through a close examination of the edTPA tasks and associated rubrics with a focus on what candidates are asked to think about, do, and write, as well as how candidate portfolios are evaluated. Each session will focus on a different task, beginning with Task 1 during the second session. NOTE: Task 4 is only applicable to the Elementary Education Handbooks.

Several key resources and best practices for successful implementation will be shared throughout the webinar series as participants learn about the extensive support system in place for EPPs.

Pre-reads: To prepare for the Deep Dive sessions participants should download the edTPA Handbook that they wish to review. Handbooks can be accessed in the edTPA Resource Library on edTPA.AACTE.org (you must have or create an account Link opens in a new window.) or through your program's edTPA Coordinator. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the handbook.
