Florida Faculty Information

Professional Development Opportunities

There are many resources available through the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) that can support the work of faculty in teacher preparation programs as they instruct and guide teacher candidates to become better prepared to meet the needs of students with disabilities in Florida's classrooms.

There are several grants that support the collaboration of national experts, teacher education faculty and FDOE staff. There are also a plethora of publications developed by the FDOE and entities on its behalf that can support faculty, teacher candidates and educators in the field. In addition, the FDOE funds multiple discretionary projects in various areas related to improving academic, behavioral and vocational outcomes for students with disabilities.

This section provides information on many of these resources. You can explore them using the links to the left.
