The NDSU Extension Service defines professional development as the personally initiated obligation and right to build discipline expertise, to enhance personal growth, to improve teaching abilities and to contribute to organizational development.
The NDSU Extension Service Professional Development Opportunities list provides an overview of training methods and topics that are covered over time.
