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.

January 7, 2020:
of Teacher and Student Learning
The annual DCPZ Exhibition of Teacher and Student Learning will take place on Thursday, April 23, at Sidwell Friends School’s Tenleytown campus. This year, the Exhibition will kick off the Remake Learning Days-DMV Festival that the PD Collaborative and KID Museum are co-producing (if you’re interested in hosting an event for this festival, click here!). It will also feature opening remarks by Project Zero researchers Edward Clapp and Sarah Sheya, who are co-leading the Making Across the Curriculum project in the region.
Inspired by the documentation practices of the world-renowned municipal preschools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and the research of Project Zero’s Making Learning Visible initiative, the Exhibition has been hosted by Sidwell Friends and organized by teachers Anne Charny and Denise Coffin since its inception in 2014. Anne and Denise are founding members of DCPZ and have been on the faculty of WISSIT, our annual summer institute, since its start. They’ve also created a helpful webpage (here) for educators who want to learn more about the Exhibition.
Stay tuned! A sign-up form for educators interested in exhibiting this year will go out in late winter, and an RSVP form for attending the exhibition will go out in March.
