Professional Development


The Office of Professional Development enhances the teaching and learning environment of the college by coordinating and promoting internal and external opportunities/resources that support the college’s mission. The Office aids the professional development and growth of the individual and the institution as measured by:

  • communicating opportunities for professional development and collaboration
  • providing opportunities for all employees to learn to be change agents and leaders within their area of expertise
  • providing opportunities for skills development at all levels of the institution

Take a look at the Professional Development Update provided during Fall Planning 2017 for an overview of the professional development opportunities available to Daytona State College employees.
