Professional Development is an opportunity for teachers to learn and grow in their field. Listed below, you will find local sessions available for CSU interns (updated periodically). These are optional but a great way to meet the Professional Development Standard on Row N of your CPAST Form:

Participate in at least one professional development opportunity (e.g. workshops, seminars, attending a professional conference, joining a professional organization). In order to Exceed expectations (3 points), interns must attend, provide evidence of an increased understanding and reflects on your own professional practice.
