Professional Development System

Advisory Board

The Professional Development System in the Watson College of Education is dedicated to collaborative inquiry, transparent governance, and consistent communication regarding the goals, initiatives, and innovations within our school-university partnership. The purpose of the PDS Advisory Board is primarily two-fold: (1) to garner input about our PDS model, signature programs, and ways in which our partnership can improve, and (2) to directly inform partners about PDS programs, activities, accomplishments, challenges, etc. The current PDS Advisory Board is comprised of 10 members representing partnership teachers, site coordinators, principals, district personnel, university supervisors, and Watson faculty and staff.
