The notion of professional development goes far beyond à la carte programming; all programs and courses are to support your training to the next stage in your career. The Professional Development Program (PDP) offers development activities in a multitude of fields to allow you to develop new skills or update your knowledge. In a world of rapid change, it is important to offer courses that meet the needs of teachers in the future. It is necessary to integrate the areas of practice that will support, update, and improve the development of transversal skills in various fields. This vision of professional development, broader than before, will be able to help you acquire skills and expertise while rubbing shoulders with experts in the subject of your choice. This vision is supported by research and the support of the Faculty.
