Professional Development Intensives

The Educational Theatre Association’s Professional Development Intensives (PDIs) are one- or two-day interactive opportunities for theatre educators to develop their arsenal of professional skills on a specific topic. PDIs are in-depth crash courses taught by experts and thought-leaders in the field of theatre education. Topics range from directing a musical to curriculum development to stage lighting. Participation in a PDI allows attendees to advance a graduate degree or earn credit required for continuing education.

Confirmed PDIs for 2015 are being posted on the Professional Development Intensives page.
