MD PDS Conference is now live!
Welcome to the 2022 PDS Conference.
April 25 – 29, 2022
Who we are:
The Maryland Professional Development Schools (PDS) Network, a collaboration of school-university partnerships, is sponsoring a webinar series in lieu of the annual fall conference. Each session will open with a presentation and conclude in stakeholder breakout sessions to discuss and plan courses of action. The theme of the webinar is Cultivating Equity in a Time of Change.
The webinar series is aligned with current trends in teacher preparation and will focus on the cultivation of equity in the time of change. In her thoughtful discussion of “Moving Educator Preparation Forward During the Pandemic,” AACTE board chair Ann Elisabeth Larson reminds us that “as we adjust to the new paradigm of education in the COVID-19 era, our mission to prepare high-quality teacher candidates who are profession ready for the 21st century learner has never been more vital.”
A focus on equity literacy asks all stakeholders in school-university partnerships to put an equity lens on each stage of teacher preparation and examine our practices to uncover inequities and implement new strategies designed to put equity at the center of our practice.
There will be live sessions on September 30th, October 22nd, November 17th, and December 14th. If you miss a session, they will be recorded. You can still complete the series and earn your CEU certificate by viewing the recordings and completing the activities.
