Can I use edWeb for CTLE hours in New York?
Yes. As of September 11, 2017 edWeb.net edWebinars are approved by the New York State Education Department’s Office of Teaching Initiatives for CTLE hours for Professional Classroom Teachers, School Leaders and Level III Teaching Assistants.
Effective July 1, 2016, Professional Development was replaced by Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) Requirements. Learn more here. Learn more about ELL/ESL/MLL requirements here. View the list of CTLE approved sponsors here.
edWeb.net is free and you can join here
As a member, you can download the CTLE certificates that have the specific information needed by NYSED from your edWeb member home page:
- Log into your edWeb account and click on the link to view your edWebinar activity.
- Read the information that tells you how frequently your record is updated.
- Enter your birthdate, which is required by the NYSED.
- Download your CTLE certificates by clicking on the CTLE Cert link.
- We are tracking your CTLE hours and will provide the information to the NYSED when they have the system ready to receive the information.
Be sure you are registered on the New York TEACH website as NYSED will only accept CTLE hours that have been earned after you register.
Watch edWebinars Live or On-Demand
Sign up for live edWebinars on our calendar of upcoming edWebinars.
Search our edWebinar archives to view edWebinar recordings. Any of these programs will count towards the 100 hours you need as long as you viewed the program after September 11, 2017, the date we were approved by New York.
We will track your attendance and update your edWebinar automatically if you log in and watch on your computer. Your edWebinar activity record will be updated within 2 weeks. If you watched in a group or by phone, you can take a quiz to get your CTLE certificate and you will find links to the quizzes in the edWebinar archives. Important Note: You need to download the certificate from the CTLE Cert Link on your edWebinar activity record for it to include all the information that New York requires.
Create a private community on edWeb and use it for personalized PD
edWeb is a great resource for personalized PD. Here are some of the many ways you can use edWeb – for free!
- Create a private community on edWeb and invite your teachers and staff to join.
- Encourage your teachers to join one or more of our professional learning communities on a wide range of innovative topics.
- Your teachers can watch our engaging edWebinars live or on-demand. Your community members will see their edWebinar activity on their member homepage. Encourage them to complete the personal learning plan for each edWebinar, so you can better understand what was learned and how it will impact teaching and learning.
- Add your own PD information and resources to the community.
edWebPro is a new service so you can run reports on the edWebinar activity of your community members. When you create a private community on edWeb, you’ll find a link for edWebPro in your Administrator’s Toolbox. This is a new service in Beta (a free trial period) so we can get your feedback on how it meets your needs and suggestions on improvements, before we launch it officially on July 1, 2018. For now, we’d like to encourage you to use this new feature at no charge and tell us how you like it.
