The Program Support PD Center (PSPDC) team is excited to share our online repository of asynchronous, “On-Demand” PD, including a series that focuses on Advising and Communication that you can access whenever your schedule allows.
We know that different times work best for busy adult educators to attend PD. Now, you can design your own flexible PD plan by accessing offerings when it’s most convenient for you!
You can find this and other series, as well as suggested pathways for new and experienced educators, on our new PSPDC On-Demand PD Google Site, which offers more than 30 sessions organized according to six strands:
- Digital Literacy
- Distance Education: Planning and Protocols
- Distance Education: Tools and Products
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion/Universal Design for Learning
- Program Management
There is no limit to how many of these sessions you can take, and there is no fixed deadline for completing them. Most videos are 60–90 minutes and include the companion slideshow and a facilitated discussion forum for exchanging ideas.
Questions? For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note these important details:
- To access these PD sessions, you will register via the links on the Google Site in the Overview above. (You will not register via the calendar as you do for our regular, synchronous PD workshops and courses.)
- The staff person with expertise in the area you choose will contact you. S/he will offer support to help you integrate your new learning into your practice.
- You will receive credit (PD hours) for attending these sessions, and also have the option to request follow-up support through individualized or program-based coaching and PD.
A final note: These PD sessions are intended to be a valuable part of your comprehensive PD plan and a response to requests for more flexible PD options. They are intended to complement—but not replace—the rich, collaborative learning that occurs during our high quality, sustained, interactive PD that you’ve come to know.
