Educator Forums

Join us!

The Professional Development Center (PDC) at the University of Southern Maine offers a new series of Educator Forums. Educator Forums are professional development events for educators of similar positions or responsibilities to explore new or best practices in their field. Forums provide an opportunity for educators to engage with peers, build new understandings from prior knowledge, and reflect on past practices.
