Registration and Application Forms for the 2009 ISEE/CfAO PDP

New Participants

Those who have never participated in the PDP before must register for and attend Re-SELT, then if interested, apply for further participation in the PDP, continuing in May with I-SELT.

  • Re-SELT Registration Due December 3, 2008
    Registration Form ... this is an interactive PDF that works OK with Adobe but not as well with Apple's Preview. If you have trouble, just print it out and send it back by fax.
    You do not have to commit to the full PDP to participate in Re-SELT. Please register to learn more. You will receive word about your registration (and possible funding award) by December 15, 2008.
  • Full PDP Application Due January 23, 2009 (for new participants)
    New Participant Application ... again, an interactive PDF that may not work for you, feel free to print out and write on it.
    You will receive notice about your application status (and potential funding award) by February 6, 2009.

Returning Participants

Those who have participated in the PDP before need not attend Re-SELT (but you may, as a refresher — feel free to contact us if you want to discuss). Instead, returning participants apply to the program earlier and jump back into the program in April with new returning-participant workshops and then continue in May with I-SELT.

  • PDP Application Due December 15, 2008 (note earlier than new participants)
    Returning Participant Application ... this is an interactive PDF that works OK with Adobe but not as well with Apple's Preview. If you have trouble, just print it out and send it back by fax.
    You will receive notice about your application status (and potential funding award) by February 6, 2009.

Please do not make travel or other arrangements for any workshop(s) until you have received official notice of your registration, application acceptance, and/or funding award.

Tentative 2009 PDP Teaching Venues

The application form asks that you express your interests in teaching venues. The following teaching venues are very tentative, they are not all guaranteed, and they are not exhaustive (more opportunities usually come up). They are listed here to give you an idea and general perspective on the types of teaching opportunities likely to be available. Details will be added and additions made as they become available. We hope to have all teaching venues finalized by March 2009.
