About Us

ASPDP is reimagining professional learning in service of educational equity to create critically conscious professional learning experiences that help educators foster supportive learning environments, develop rigorous instructional practices, and maximize outcomes for students at all levels, particularly Black, Indigenous, and Students of Color.

We partner with over 30 non-profits, museums, and specialized professional development providers to offer more than 200 courses each semester. We offer courses across numerous categories, so every teacher may find something of interest in our catalog. Courses aligned with the Common Core Standards and the Danielson Framework for Teaching, and there are both online and classroom courses, as well as a limited number of hybrid classes, which combine both online and in-person classes.

All NYC educators are eligible to take ASPDP course to further their own knowledge and improve their teaching practice. ASPDP courses can also be credited towards the salary differential (30+) and the NYS CTLE requirements. Please see our FAQ and Participant Policies for more information.

We hope to see you soon in an ASPDP course!
