Welcome to the LINCS Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC) for Region 4

The RPDCs are the main mechanism through which evidence-based professional development is delivered to teachers and program staff on topics of national importance. We collaborate with our advisory partners to disseminate information on the materials and professional development activities in the LINCS Resource Collection; organize and deliver virtual and in-person professional development; and foster the use of new technologies, including virtual communities of practice.
