Lifelong learning is inherent to the role of a professional educator. Whether in the position of classroom teacher, specialist, or administrator, educators have an ongoing need for professional learning. The SUTEP Professional Development Committee addresses this need through multiple strategies including face-to-face workshops and conferences, school/university collaboration, leadership summits, and grant support for innovative school-based projects. The strategies selected are driven by the goals set by the Professional Development Committee, which is composed of educators from partnership schools, school district administrators, and WCU faculty and staff. The committee reviews the goals on an annual basis and revises or changes them based on the needs of regional educators or changes in state level policies, and as deemed appropriate by the members of the committee.
