What's this webinar about?
Effective professional learning--like effective classroom teaching--must result in more actively engaged participants and, ultimately, improved results. It is structured, yet flexible. It is teacher-focused and personalized, yet a collaborative venture between each teacher and building leaders. It allows for a great deal of teacher choice and teacher voice within a system of professional learning expectations and mindsets. It is based on the needs of individual teachers and provides real world, practical learning experiences that make teachers better at what they do. In essence, effective professional learning is the complete opposite of the traditional, one-size-fits-all, sit and get, hours-based model that remains the cornerstone of many districts’ plans throughout the nation.
