Examining the Unique Contributions of Professional Development Schools
The University of South Carolina and the National Association for Professional Development Schools invite you to participate in the 2013 PDS National Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. This annual gathering of educators has served for fourteen years as a source of invaluable networking for P-12 and college/university faculty and administrators interested in sharing with each other their efforts in building and sustaining PDS relationships across the school-university continuum. The Planning Team for the 2013 event is building on that legacy by designing a four-day schedule that will include multiple opportunities for formal and informal conversations, presentations from nationally recognized keynote speakers, hands-on workshops addressing such topics as how to get started with a PDS and how to most effectively disseminate your PDS work to the broader public, and sessions specifically designed to encourage teacher candidates to take leadership roles in the national PDS initiative.
