Professional Development Center for Educators


The University of Delaware has had long-standing partnerships with local schools and districts in Delaware and surrounding areas. We provide professional development for educators through a variety of channels.

The PDCE has incorporated several projects, programs and centers to create one cohesive unit.

Our partners have gained extensive practical knowledge in creating lesson plans, managing classrooms, data assessment, building leadership skills, etc.
