Director’s Welcome

The 24th Annual College Board* endorsed Advanced Placement Summer Institutes were a huge success!

The Arkansas Advanced Placement Professional Development Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has finished the 24th annual AP Summer Institutes. We are excited to have hosted professional development opportunities and worked hard to make the weeks fun and enlightening for everyone.  College Board endorsed professional development for Advanced Placement teachers in English, social studies, Spanish, art, Computer Science Principles, mathematics and science were offered in June and July 2018. The slate of classes also included offerings for the teaching of Pre-Advanced Placement in all disciplines. All classes were approved for professional development hours by the Arkansas Department of Education and were free to Arkansas teachers until grant funding was exhausted. A complete list of subjects and the weeks they were offered is listed on our home page at ualr.edu/apsi. Check the website for registration for 2019 APSI.

As Director for the Arkansas Advanced Placement Professional Development Center, I and Associate Director Dr. Christine Deitz, AP Assistant Director Deborah Cook, and AP Program Coordinator Becky Rogers, will select classes to fit your needs as educators and will contract nationally recognized consultants as presenters.  If you have any questions, please contact Deborah Cook at dacook@ualr.edu or Becky Rogers at rarogers@ualr.edu or call the Arkansas Advanced Placement Professional Development Center at 501.569.3401 or 501.569.3432.
