New UD Educator Preparation Alliance
The UD Educator Preparation Alliance launched in May, bringing together members of the education community to collaborate on the preparation of the next generation of teachers. The members include school teachers, principals, human resource managers, and superintendents; DSEA leaders; DDOE leaders; and University faculty and staff. At the first meeting on May 11, the members worked in small groups to identify the critical competencies teacher candidates need to develop and key topics/issues that should be addressed at future meetings. The most common themes from the group discussions are listed below.
- Critical competencies: assessment, building classroom communities, cultural competency
- Topics/issues: student teaching, clinical educators, induction/retention
ERC Online Catalog Access
Recently, the ERC server had to be shut down due to an apparent hacking attempt. The system was down for two weeks to determine the extent of the intrusion and to rebuild the server. The system is back online; however, off campus access is now limited to UD’s AnyConnect VPN and 2 factor authentication (2FA). Access to the catalog on campus to the catalog remains the same.For more information on using 2FA and the AnyConnect VPN, please follow this LINK.
