Professional Development & Instructional Issues

NJEA Professional Development and Instructional Issues oversees the professional and instructional interest of the organization and its members.

The division focuses on a wide range of professional development and continuing education issues. It has worked extensively with the N.J. Department of Education to promote a positive professional development thrust. The division works with the teacher-led State Professional Teaching Standards Board, County Professional Development Boards, and local Professional Development Committees, which oversee continuing education in the state.

The division coordinates major statewide instructional issue conferences and scores of specialized meetings. It plans and administers the NJEA Convention - the Association's premier professional development event - developing and coordinating professional programs and activities, as well as overseeing facilities arrangements, logistical services, and exposition services.

It is responsible for the NJEA Professional Development Institute, which endorses and promotes high quality professional development programs.

In addition, the division acts as a resource on a wide variety of instructional subjects and professional issues, extending from such topics as reading to gender equity and youth services.

Division staff assists members and local and county affiliates in the field on these issues as needed through the NJEA-NEA UniServ network.
