The overarching vision of NYSPDC was the creation of a statewide professional development collaborative that is responsive to the needs of the technology education community and that is sustained by a dynamic and cohesive partnership among colleges, high school technology educators, and business and industry leaders.

The project's primary goals were to: (1) produce a cadre of expert technology leaders from high schools and colleges; (2) link high school and college technology educators in a meaningful and sustainable collaboration; (3) provide professional development workshops for high school technology teachers in materials/manufacturing and information technologies; (4) encourage statewide dissemination and implementation of exemplary technology education instructional practices; and (5) create a transportable and sustainable model of professional development.
