Rethinking and Revaluing Professional Development: Ensuring Equity, Access, and Affordability

Wednesday, January 12, 2022
Webinar at 2 p.m. ET

Along with research, professional development is woven into the fabric of academics in higher education. Institutions, programs, and faculty are often expected to fulfill a vague mandate with limited resources. In this session, speakers from Winona State University (Minn.) and the University of Central Oklahoma will share how they are effectively deploying a new platform to prepare and support College of Education graduates, serve their K-12 school district educators, and provide adjunct faculty with high-quality development opportunities.

Join to hear about their stories and other use cases for this professional development platform, including:

  • A strategic planning tool for continuing education requirements, tenure, and promotion
  • A mechanism for schools of education to provide their graduates with resources and support to meet their needs as early-career educators, as well as an effective alumni outreach system
  • Analytics and reporting to document evidence of end-to-end professional development progress
  • Accessible, affordable training and upskilling for higher education faculty and staff

This webinar is free to AASCU members.
