The Educator Preparation Program domain is an emerging area where Ed-Fi is being used within higher education to support data and visualization needs within teacher preparation and professional development programs. Come join an active community discussion on these topics to learn what has been done to date and where EPP support will grow in the future.
These broad session notes attempt to capture the spirit of the discussion and should not be interpreted as a transcript. Although Ed-Fi Alliance staff were involved in capturing these observations, the notes below should not be construed as official, complete, or 100% accurate.
Ana discussed the history of TPDM/EPDM, what types of data the EPP’s share with states (mandatory reporting), and several use cases where EPDM can help the SEAs and EPP’s collaborate. Cali discussed the data ownership and sharing issues between EPPs and SEAs and how the TEA implementation will break down some of the data sharing barriers with Texas EPP’s Steven discussed the current development efforts on the EPDM model including EPDM-Core and EPDM-Community and the future plans for the model.
