What is the Professional Development Plan? The Professional Development Plan is a directed planning and evaluation document Used in annual performance appraisals as well as academic promotion. Annual performance reviews utilize the PDP process as a foundation for faculty to accurately identify achievable goals for their academic careers.
Individual professional development plans are established collaboratively between faculty, the supervising Chair, and the Deans, who are responsible for making recommendations to the Provost. What is the Professional Development Plan?
The PDP form details your accomplishments in the previous academic year and what you plan to accomplish in the upcoming academic year. What is the PDP? Doug Aitken, You, You, 2012, http://www.dougaitkenworkshop.com/work/text-sculpture/
The PDP is a living document. Faculty should feel free to add to and revise their PDP forms through the academic year. Professional development opportunities may emerge or change. What is the PDP?
