Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

With education battling the issue of time due to lack of subs, pandemic absences, and weather events; taking time out to do professional development is becoming more and more difficult. The PD on the Go posters allow for schools to address that challenge by offering convenient, monthly professional development that allows for teacher choice.
LPPS district utilized this format and feedback at the end of the year was that it was one of the most valuable professional developments of the year.

Outline

Participants will be introduced to the concept of PD on the Go Posters by receiving a Poster upon entrance. Presenters will then define the concept, what it contains, and reasons why schools should create their own. Presenters will then show feedback from the previous year's session, provide a blank template, and being working peer-to-peer to help them begin the process of creating their own posters and gleaning content.
