Graduate Level

Professional Development Program - March '07 , Maui, Hawaii
The CfAO Professional Development Program (PDP) is a flexible, multi-year program for scientists and engineers at the early stages of their careers, with a primary focus on graduate students. Participants in the PDP attend a 5-day teaching workshop held each spring. They work on a design team during and after the workshop, continue developing skills through mini-workshops and expert consultation, and put their new teaching skills into practice. The practical teaching experience takes place in one of CfAO's educational programs or courses, acting as a "teaching lab" for PDP participants. PDP participants leave the program as highly trained, innovative, and reflective scientist educators. They are well prepared for an academic position, as well as a wide range of other careers in science or science education.

The 2007 PDP has a one-year participation cycle that is roughly equivalent to completing a course, but spread out over approximately 6-12 months. The 2007 workshop will be held March 2-6, 2007, but after the workshop, participants schedule remaining activities to work within their own schedule.
