Professional Development Graduate Certification Program
Stewardship in the PDP Process


PDP Course
Graduate Certificate Program

P1-34 invites an opportunity for stewardship of professional growth for educators at all levels of experiences. The PDP Certificate Program seeks to create engagement in the PDP process that strengthens talents and resources of all individuals within their professional communities.

This 9-credit, two-semester, graduate certificate program is designed for experienced teachers, administrators, and pupil services personnel. Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to serve as mentors and qualified to serve as Initial Educator PDP Review Team members and Higher Education Representatives. The PDP certificate courses are offered on-campus or as site-based certificate programs. These programs can be tailored to fit district/consortium needs by incorporating field-based experiences on the school/district site. Site-based training includes all three courses delivered in your locality with special consideration to the learning needs of professionals in your district/consortium.

The following program courses are also accessible to professionals (e.g., teachers, administrators, and pupil services personnel) not enrolled in the PDP Certificate Program, who are seeking training to support district programs in mentoring or professional development for initial educators required by PI-34.

The program:
  • Targets experienced professionals seeking a graduate degree to fulfill requirements for the Master Educator License.
  • Provides performance-based courses designed for teachers, administrators, and pupil service personnel.
  • Provides either courses on campus at UW-Whitewater or on-site certificate programs for districts and educational agencies.
  • Prepares experienced educators to serve as PDP mentors, coaches and team members.
  • Provides program courses that blend 50% class instruction with 50% field-based application activities and web-based learning communities.
  • Applies to selected Master of Science Degree Programs and Post Masters Programs at UW-Whitewater.
