Professional Development

WIS has a reputation for the depth and relevance of its professional development programs. With a Director of Teaching and Learning on each campus, faculty members are encouraged to explore opportunities to improve their craft on- and off-campus.

A long-standing relationship with Harvard University Graduate School of Education's Project Zero and generous grants from the Edward E. Ford Foundation led to the establishment (in 2013) of the WIS Summer Institute for Teachers. This one-week program invites DC-area public and private school educators to collaborate and learn from each other.

The success of WISSIT and related programs encouraged WIS to create the Professional Development Collaborative @ WIS. This non-profit organization partners with local organizations and schools to deliver programs and events that ultimately benefit thousands of students.
