Professional Development (PD) CoP

The Professional Development Community of Practice (PD CoP) is a place for individuals who are designing and delivering professional development and/or technical assistance within the field of Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE). Participants become part of a community that has a common interest in providing high quality professional development to the EI/ECSE workforce. The PD CoP offers participants a variety of ways to connect with colleagues, share resources, engage in problem-solving, celebrate success, and explore new ideas together.

Join the PD CoP

When you join the PD CoP you become a member of a peer-to-peer group of professionals committed to training and supporting the EI/ECSE workforce. The short membership form gathers pertinent information about each member that can be used to facilitate networking, resource-sharing, problem-solving, and collaboration.

Please join the PD CoP to receive email alerts and calendar invites for future meetings
