Professional Development 2019-2020
NACEP, the Advanced Credit Program's accrediting body, requires all dual credit adjuncts to attend one professional development workshop every academic year. For this reason, the ACP offers a wide variety of PD workshops each year. For a list of this year's professional development workshops, see the list below.
Adjuncts who participate in these workshops receive a $100 stipend for personal use (limit one per academic year) and they are also awarded one student scholarship (limit two per academic year). The ACP awarded approximately $30,000 in teacher stipends and $76,500 in student scholarships last year. If you have questions, please email Susan Adams at email@example.com.
