Professional Learning that Matters
When you think about professional development in education it is reasonable to picture what most of us have experienced; full day workshops of “sit and get” and a “hope” that what was communicated in five hours will somehow miraculously change our practice. Or perhaps it is the “Wild West” professional learning approach, where one struts out on their own to pursue what they are personally interested in, only to find that alignment to district and school goals, or even educational strategies, proves problematic.
Our team member, Ellen Hume-Howard at the New Hampshire Learning Initiative (NHLI) had done some thinking and writing on this. Why not mosey on over to her blog post on the NHLI site to find out more.
