CENTER FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING (CPDT)


Professional development encompasses all types of facilitated learning opportunities including credentials such as academic degrees to formal course work, conferences and informal learning opportunities situated in practice. It has been described as intensive and collaborative, ideally incorporating an evaluative stage. There are a variety of approaches to professional development including consultation, coaching, technical assistance, lesson study, mentoring, reflective supervision and communities of practice.

The IMTU Division of Continuing Education offers short courses, seminars, workshops, round tables and other formats of professional development programs for credit or non-credit geared towards working adults. Areas include health care, medicine, nursing, business management and technology. We can also design custom training and consulting programs for organizations that can be delivered online or client site.
