Professional Development

Included on these pages are a number of resources to assist you in your professional development activities. Besides the Key Competency Grid and a FAQ sheet on the Professional Development Database, you will find a list of recommended courses from a variety of on- and off-campus sources for your consideration.

As you create your own professional development plans, take some time to review this information, along with the conference recaps and the citations, for an assortment of reference books and materials.

If you have suggestions or recommendations for additional information to incorporate on these pages, please send them to abranson@niu.edu
