Are you preparing your edTPA portfolio this spring or summer?

Have you already registered with Pearson and paid the fee for edTPA?

If so, the Graduate School is offering monthly workshops to help you learn how to load your edTPA portfolio materials onto the Tk20 platform and help you learn how to condense and load up video footage.

We will offer an edTPA workshop on one Saturday and one weekday evening each month from February through June 2014. Also, please note the helpful videos below.

If you have any questions, please contact me at ngropper@bankstreet.edu. Thank you.
