IS & EE Professional Development Program

Teaching science as inquiry, engineering as design

The ISEE Professional Development Program (PDP) is a flexible, multi-year program for scientists and engineers at the early stages of their careers, with a primary focus on graduate students.

Participants receive training through workshops, work on a design team before and after workshops, continue developing their skills through mini-workshops and expert consultation, and then put their new teaching skills into practice. The practical teaching experience takes place in “teaching labs” — PDP-affiliated educational programs or courses. PDP participants leave the program as well-trained, innovative, and reflective scientist-educators and engineer-educators.

The PDP includes the following:

  • ISEE Inquiry Institute           
  • ISEE Design Institute
  • Facilitation Workshops
  • Teaching experience
