Professional Development and Program Evaluation
The goal of this session is to provide attendees with several types of research-aligned professional learning experiences and share the struggles and successes of changing the culture of professional learning at one high school. Presenters will identify common pitfalls of ineffective professional development, then emphasize current research to develop guiding principles that support a shift to innovative professional development models.
Through the lens of Mishra & Kohler’s TPACK framework, presenters constructed sustainable learning models that blend best pedagogical practices with embedded educational technology training. Using the school’s one-to-one iPad program as its backdrop, the professional learning plan promoted choice, voice and multiple learning pathways to enable teachers to personalize their PD and continue to grow in ways they desired.
In this session, attendees will:
Discuss characteristics of effective professional learning experiences
Understand current research supporting innovative professional learning models
Learn about several strategies for embedding educational technology training within professional learning
Create a repository of successful professional learning experiences.
Design an upcoming professional learning opportunity for use in the 2019-20 school year.
