Professional Development and Program Evaluation
Our professional development work encourages teachers to exercise agency in their professional growth and to collaborate with colleagues to develop new cross-curricular learning opportunities for our students. We use a variety of research-based resources, peer-led professional development offerings, and in-house collaborative learning opportunities to engage our faculty and staff in challenging and fruitful summer professional development work. Given that the work occurs in the summer months, we use a variety of edtech tools to connect and share with one another, including Zoom and Google Meet, Google Apps and Office 365, Seesaw, Screencastify, Mote and EdPuzzle, among others. This session will offer a roadmap for school leaders and coaches who are looking to support their own schools in engaging in successful professional development.
