PDP Support for Initial and Professional Educators

UW-Whitewater Campus-Based Summer Institute Series

PDP Speaker
  • A focused, structured three-year process for initial educators to receive mentorship and support to create, reflect, refine, document, and verify successful completion of PDPs.
  • A process for professional educators seeking the option of writing PDPs rather than taking six credits to renew their licenses in 2006, 2007, and 2008.
  • A process that guides professionals to examine the relationship between their professional growth and development and student learning outcomes.
  • Opportunities to engage in learning communities with other regional initial educators, experienced professionals, and university faculty across disciplines

These one-credit Institutes can be taken for undergraduate or graduate credit. Graduate credits can be applied to Master of Science in Education - Professinal Development and/or the PDP Graduate Certificate Program.
