The 2021 Professional Development Institute (PDI) will be held in person Friday, November 5-Sunday, November 7 in beautiful downtown Oshkosh. Registration will open soon.
This year’s PDI keynote speaker is author and educator Matthew Kay. Kay’s book Not Light, but Fire was inspired by Frederick Douglass’s abolitionist call to action, “it is not light that is needed, but fire.” Kay has spent his career learning how to lead students through the most difficult race conversations and makes the case that school classrooms are one of the best places to have those conversations.
In honor of Governor Evers recently signing the requirement to teach curriculum related to the holocaust we are partnering with The Holocaust Shoe Project. We ask that all presenters and participants bring new or gently used pairs of shoes to donate.
