Online Professional Development

Although on-line PD is often necessary, we have discovered that it is not ideal for the development of skills in conducting hands-on curriculum. In an attempt to improve the efficiency of On-line offerings, we customize each session to the requirements of the audience. The following list provides some of the options available.

To pursue professional development opportunities, please contact Dr. Brad Christensen (bachris@ilstu.edu).
