K14 Career Education Professional Development

Professional Development (PD) is a critical component of the region’s strategy for long-term change and improvement in services for students. PD is required both to facilitate the implementation of best practices and to support continuous improvement.  In accordance with adult learning theory, high quality PD includes goal-driven, active engagement of learners, peer to peer learning, and experiential learning, with strategic use of written materials and oral presentations.
