Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs)

In 2017, the US Department of Education called for preparation programs to adopt a program-deep and program-wide model for addressing technology, meaning ALL teacher educators would need to improve their ability to support in their courses. Teacher educators who want to address technology in their courses can use the Teacher Educational Technology Competencies (TETCs) to guide their professional development.

The TETCs are included in this open-access article.
