Faculty Professional Development

Faculty Professional Development Summit

AAP Faculty, please check your email for an invitation to the 3rd Annual Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) Faculty Professional Development Summit, on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019, in Washington, DC. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM with our first session starting at 9:00 PM. The event will conclude with a Mix & Mingle reception form 4:10-5:00 PM.

This year we will have three breakout sessions with some repeating sessions that focus on pedagogy, challenges, and tools and technology for the classroom. While we plan to live stream the keynote and one of the four sessions for each breakout session, the best way to catch all the sessions is by attending in person.

If you have not received an invitation, please reach out to your program director for the invitation.
