The Evidence of Learning and Practice: Teacher Performance Assessment By the Profession, For the Profession 2013 National edTPA Implementation Conference will be convened November 1-2, 2013 at the University of San Diego. This annual two-day gathering is open to higher education administrators, faculty and supervisors and state education agencies (SEAs) who are seeking to deepen their understanding of edTPA and network within a learning community of edTPA users. Regardless of whether a state or program is brand new to edTPA, in the beginning stages of implementation and/or has established policy for teacher performance assessment and preparing for full implementation, the conference is structured to support this wide range of needs. Attendees will benefit from attending workshops and discussions that support implementation and emphasize edTPA’s educative elements for candidates and its program renewal potential.

Keynote Address:

Deborah Loewenberg Ball
William H. Payne Collegiate Professor in Education and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor
Dean, School of Education
