Professional Development

The Learning Resource Center-South staff at Rowan University, in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) Office of Special Education Professional Development (OSEPD), provides regional and targeted professional development and technical assistance to educators and families of students with disabilities.

The LRC-South is housed within the College of Education at Rowan University. The College has a multitude of formal and informal relationships with schools and a longstanding, ever expanding, Professional Development School (PDS) Network. Each school within the PDS Network has assigned Professors-in-Residence who spends at least 2-days per week onsite working directly with practicing teachers and preservice teachers.

  • General & Special Education Teachers
  • Preservice Teachers
  • Paraprofessionals
  • School Leaders
  • Advocates/Advocacy Group Members
