What is “P.D.”? Plausible Dada? A Pajama Day? A Pleasant Digression?
“Professional Development” is a term that secondary education folks cringe when they see. “P.D.” is a loaded phrase, synomous with the idea of outside “experts” who come in to hawk trends that vanish in a year or two.
For our Spring 2022 Conference, we are playing with the much-dreaded notion of “P.D.” as we embark on a play day to refresh our syllabi for the changeover to ENGL 1007 in the fall. We are dedicating the conference to a day of workshops intended to help instructors jumpstart their course inquiries, experience Studio Pedagogy as students, and develop their own Studio activities. Bring your syllabi, your assignments, and your ideas!
