PD Description


We know that you've experienced another “year unlike any other”, so PDx is designed to be flexible and accessible for you. Participate when you can and take a break when you need to. Either way, we'll be here to support your professional growth.
WHAT IS Podcast PDx?
PDx is Professional Development (PD) by (x) podcast. It is a fancy, simplified term for saying that you are receiving professional development in the form of a podcast. The podcast you'll be engaging with will be For the Purpose of... with Ron Houtman, Keith Tramper, Sarah Wood and their guests.
PDx is designed for educators who have a demanding schedule and want to stay on top of trends and topics in educational technology and earn SCECH credits.
