NASDTEC publishes materials that are designed to provide service to the educational community and to individual educators. The Communicator is the Association's newsletter published several times a year.
Until 2004, the NASDTEC Manual was published annually and was the most comprehensive compilation of data on the certification requirements and practices in the United States and Canada. The Manual has been replaced by the NASDTEC KnowledgeBase, on online publication.
The KnowledgeBase is an expanded version of the Manual and contains more information than we could have included in the printed publication. The KnowledgeBase is used by individuals seeking information about other states and is a major source for state policy-makers and teacher educators in considering change to teacher education or certification. Subscriptions to the KnowledgeBase can be purchased directly through this website using a credit card, or through the NASDTEC office using a purchase order or check.
The NASDTEC On-Line Directory resides on our website and lists the state teacher education and certification/ licensure contacts for all U.S. jurisdictions and Canadian provinces. It also provides a list of contacts at NASDTEC Associate members. The Directory is available to all members at no cost and to others through a paid subscription. The Directory is constantly updated.
Critical Issue Papers are published any time there is a topic that we feel needs to be addressed by the Association. Papers have been produced by each of the standing committees and have served to establish NASDTEC's position on a number of critical issues.
