If PD is for staff to improve themselves and learn new techniques, then why not have a day where students select what skills they want to learn and sign-up for sessions of interest? Student PD allows students to have a VOICE in their education, make a CHOICE on what they want to learn, and APPLY their new skills in everyday life. In this session, we will discuss how this idea came about, what steps we took to make it happen, and share the results of our first professional development day for students.
