What We Do

The Professional Development Collaborative at Washington International School

works to strengthen educators’ capacity to inspire deep thinking in learners, to educate for global competence, and to share best practices with the community at large. In building upon WIS’s role as a leader in international education, the Collaborative’s ultimate goal is to make the nation’s capital a model city for creative thinking and innovation in education, worthy of replication across the country.

Our role is three-fold:

1. Organize high-quality professional development events;

2. Convene educators from all sectors of the educational landscape; and

3. Build and sustain a network of committed professionals beyond any single professional development.
