Latest News from the Collaborative

Read from our latest newsletter about everything PDC has been up to! About twice a month, the Professional Development Collaborative sends out a newsletter to its 2000+ subscribers to let them know about the projects we are working on; the relevant meetings or conferences at which we are presenting or that we are attending; and, of course, descriptions and reminders for all of the wonderful DC-PZ events that are coming up soon. This includes information about WISSIT--our annual summer  institute for educators. In addition to being emailed to all of our subscribers, each newsletter will also be posted here, on our website.
