Professional Development for Educators (PDE)

Design your own professional development experience this summer!  Join us for a Half-Week or Full-Week Professional Development and select the components that fit your needs.  Work with leading guest conductors, active professional artists, and energetic teachers who are eager to share their expertise with you in the beautiful setting at the International Music Camp.  Set up your schedule when you arrive at camp – classes, rehearsals, lessons, and seminars.  You can observe multiple programs each week.  Come prepared for individualized learning that fits your needs and your schedule.

One graduate level professional development credit will be available through the University of North Dakota for 15 hours of contact time.  Full-Week 2-credit sessions are also available.  Half-Week Sessions run Sunday evening through Wednesday, and Full-Week Sessions run Sunday through Saturday.  Each PDE session includes 2 private lessons.  PDE Sessions are available Sessions 1-6.  Contact the IMC office for more details.  See the bottom of the page for more info.

PDE participants are housed in cabins or dorms with other adults.  IMC Housing is not co-ed.  We do not have single rooms or accommodations for couples. PDE participants wishing to camp need to contact the International Peace Garden about reserving campsites.  www.peacegarden.com
