Update on the New DASA Requirements 1) understanding the Dignity Act; 2) understanding how school climate and culture impact student achievement & behavior; 3) understanding bullying, harassment & discrimination (early earning signs, prevention and intervention) and how to interact with families of victims & aggressors; 4) understanding diversity & multicultural environments and examining personal biases; 5) developing sensitivity to the experience of specific student populations.
DASA Timeline Amendment of Part 52 and 80 of NYSED regs and curriculum approval to occur at June Board of Regents meeting. Implementation: 07/01/13 May and August graduates should apply and pay for certification by 07/01/13; they will need DASA training when applying for additional certificates after that date.
DASA Workshops 6 clock hours (3 of which must be face to face) Short-term: Summer workshops being planned here at SUNY Cortland & BOCES maybe. No approved commercial providers yet. Long-term: Develop 3 hour online course/workshop and have 3 hour workshops ongoing, like CARR and SAVE. Embedded within designated courses.
Update on C-TEN Initiative Four spring workshops completed with action plans. EdTPA, Data-driven instruction, Clinically rich experiences and Common Core $40,000 coming to each campus for professional development of faculty by 9/1/14. Should include community college partners. $250K competitive grant within Central New York Region to establish Regional Centers of Pedagogy targeting best practices.
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Approximately 26 student teachers from seven programs (Childhood, Early Childhood, PE, Adolescent English, Science, Math and Modern Languages) participated in edTPA field test with 15 from Health doing an internal pilot. All submitted on time and with support. Discussion of “lessons learned” planned for Monday, May 13, 4:30 – 6 pm in Jacobus. Ad Hoc edTPA Advisory Committee has been meeting weekly to discuss issues related to implementation of edTPA. Plan is to propose unit-wide policies for edTPA implementation to TEC in the Fall.
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Unit wide issues/decisions: Supervisor training: Adjunct supervisors will be paid a $250 stipend to get edTPA training this summer. Multiple sessions will be available While expectations of how much supervisors will review edTPA may vary by department, all supervisors need to have familiarity with edTPA and Taskstream for purposes of supporting student teachers and host teachers through the process.
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Unit wide issues/decisions: Technological Support: Short term: Technology training will be provided to students and faculty on an as needed basis. Ideal delivery method is in methods courses or seminars. Long term: Integration of technology competencies in curriculum.
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Unit wide issues/decisions: Retake Policy: How will students be supported to retake edTPA? Possible solution: edTPA Internship Student makes proposal to department with areas needing to be addressed, proposed length of time/credit hours, suggested host teachers. Department approves proposal; FESP makes placement; student pays for credit hours. Issues to be determined: How many retakes allowed? Stipends for host teachers/faculty involved in retake? Other ideas?
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Unit wide issues/decisions: Video taping procedures/permissions How much videotaping should be happening in schools prior to student teaching? Appropriate handling of videos of children and confidential info. Implications for Field Placements: Communication with the Field
edTPA Issues, Challenges, Roadblocks Departmental Decisions: Role of Supervisor in administering edTPA Requirement of submission of edTPA to Pearson: The Unit will not be requiring this. Curriculum/Catalog changes related to edTPA. Role of edTPA in SPA reports.
