Mission: The mission of the Professional Development Institute (PDI) is improve student achievement through the professional growth of University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College employees via high-quality, timely, and cost-effective professional development opportunities that support the institution’s strategic goals. PDI does this by delivering face-to-face and online programs facilitated by internal and external partners, and by seeking continual feedback from subject matter experts and other stakeholders. These opportunities are designed to promote more effective teaching and learning, to explore current research in education, especially in the two-year college setting, and to foster personal and professional growth.
Where you register depends upon the format or location of training offered. Registration for on-campus events is handled through Technet, the UA-PTC Intranet. For assistance in registering, we have included detailed instructions, instructions with screenshots, and a video. Because setup for online training requires more information than we need for on-campus, registration is handled differently. Check the PDI Online page for more information on and deadlines for registering for online courses. Off-campus and some specialized training also require specific information. With each event advertised, we include a link to registration for that event.
