Physical Education edTPA in a Virtual Learning Environment Guidance

By Rebekah Johnson, MSE, Carthage College, and Seth Jenny, PhD, Slippery Rock University

 

What is edTPA (Education Teacher Performance Assessment) and why is it important to know about virtual learning environments (VLE) for edTPA?

 

In the video below, Human Kinetic authors Rebekah Johnson and Seth Jenny discuss the type of learning environment that is acceptable for edTPA and the changes to edTPA requirements for VLE. Practical ideas are offered in this discussion, including how to collect parent permissions within a VLE and some common physical education lesson activities taught for edTPA within the VLE.

 

For more information on how to effectively complete edTPA and incorporate technology into physical education, see the following resources:
