PD Offerings by Other Organizations

If your school is implementing a curriculum through a College Board endorsed provider, you can attend a professional development event offered by the specific program. You are not required to attend an AP Summer Institute.

Online Professional Development

AP Mentoring, a teacher-to-teacher online professional development program, gives you the opportunity to enhance your teaching skills by working with an expert mentor teacher. You and a group of up to three peers meet online with your mentor throughout the school year, sharing feedback and receiving personalized feedback that can be applied in the classroom right away.
