Professional Development for PreK–12 Teachers, Community Educators, and School or District Leaders
The Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) provides educators with professional development that addresses critical content areas in teaching and learning.
Building upon our reputation for preparing experts in teacher education, our offerings will apply culturally responsive and innovative approaches to help educators ensure that learners—especially English language learners and children with special needs—reach their full potential. Some offerings can be taken for graduate credit or Professional Development Points (PDPs).
On-campus offerings take place on the Lesley University campus in Cambridge, MA, near Porter Square (accessible by the Red Line or the commuter rail). For information about CAPS coming to your district or school, please contact us.
