UD’s Professional Development Center for Education within the College of Education and Human Development works closely with teachers and administrators to carefully craft services that meet the particular needs of schools and school districts.
UD’s PDCE center is designed to meet the professional development needs of the K-12 education community in the core subjects of English language arts, math, science and social studies and instructional approaches (e.g., project-based learning, social learning).
Our focus is on supporting teachers’ use of practices that support all students’ learning of the appropriate content standards. We form partnerships with teachers to help them meet the challenges of educating all their 21 century learners. We deliver information, co-plan and co-teach lessons and units of study, and coach in classrooms.
We can help:
- teachers diversify their instruction; align their curriculum and classroom instruction to standards; plan and implement instruction aligned with the new generation of assessments and instruction;
- teach students how to read and write in discipline areas;
- plan and implement project-based or problem-based learning experiences; deepen their content knowledge,
- develop the social curriculum to support the use of engaging student-centered instructional strategies, and more.
We are interested in knowing your needs –and plan accordingly.
