Professional Development Affiliate Program (PDAP): The objective of the Professional Development Affiliate Program is to ensure 21st century readiness for every student by establishing a network of professional development experts. Participants will leave with a firm understanding of the Framework for 21st Century Learning and how they can fuse the 3Rs (reading, writing, mathematics, history, and others) and the 4Cs (critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration and creativity) in their own professional development work. Visit our PDAP webpage here. More information is also available in the PDAP Brochure.
