Just In Time PD for NEW PLTW Teachers

Project Lead The Way offers a Professional Development Plan or PDP as a solution to assist schools that were unable to get their teachers to training Summer 2016.  This is an option if you just hired a teacher, for example, or you need an existing teacher to take on teaching PLTW courses or units, but they are not yet certified in these.

Schools needing to make use of this PDP option can learn more by reading the appropriate overviews:
