Summer PDI Courses

Now is the time to plan and prepare to deliver a PDI course or conduct a Professional Book Study this summer. Select the LEARN MORE icon on the right to explore current PDI initiatives, or the START HERE icon to find out how to start a collaborative partnership between your school and Saint Mary's University.

Professional Book Study

Professional book studies provide the structure for purposeful dialogue that richly connects a text to the participants' work in schools. Such a collaborative structure promotes needed collegiality and professionalism among colleagues. Implementation discussions allow participants to share what works and what doesn't, and bring forth recommendations to impact instruction for promoting student achievement. If you would like to lead a Book Study in your school this year, please contact the PDI program office at 1-877-218-4755 and we will help you get started!
