About the Professional Development Institute


PDI BuildingThe Professional Development Institute has been in business for over 21 years and has trained more than 125,000 teachers across the globe. We provide quality and convenient online courses to K-12 teachers. PDI courses focus on the most relevant topics in education and provide practical strategies that can be implemented in the classroom immediately. Every PDI online education course is approved for Post-Baccalaureate (at the graduate-level) credit through the University of California San Diego (UCSD). UCSD is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), which is one of six regional associations that accredit public and private colleges and universities in the United States.

Many of PDI's online courses are developed by the PDI President, Connie Ryan. Connie has a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as many years of experience as a teacher, trainer, author, and online instructor
