Professional Development

One of the main objectives of our association is to support teachers’ professional development through regional conferences and workshops. APISC organizes at least two events of professional development per year, giving teachers from our province and other provinces, the opportunity to grow personally and professionally by interacting with well-known speakers from our country, becoming acquainted with the last teaching trends and theories and meeting local colleagues, as well as those from other towns in our province. At APISC we strongly believe that by sharing this type of professional development instances, teachers can enrich their teaching practices and increase their motivation as well as find new challenges to become better professionals and thus produce a positive effect on our community.
