Professional Development (PD) is needed in a school system to increase teacher effectiveness by providing relevant, timely knowledge, strategies and techniques to improve classroom practice. However, PD is not created and delivered in an engaging, efficient way. Nor is it having the impact on student achievement as intended. Develop an avenue to provide professional development in a differentiated, personalized way for teachers so it has the impact on students that is needed. Listen in on how to create a delicious menu of PD that teachers will truly care about.
- Teachers don’t complain about PD because they don’t want to get better. They complain about PD because its not useful.
- Break up with the pain of past PD.
- You have the power to change the way Ts look at and feel about PD.
