📑 What Makes Good Professional Development?


Joel Speranza posits what makes good professional development:

Good PD is:
– Content-focused
– Involves Active learning for participants
– Coherent with school goals and teacher beliefs
– Long in both hours and span of time
– Collaborative

In many ways, this reminds me of my experience with Disciplined Collaboration:

One of the challenges associated with Disciplined Collaboration is creating the right conditions to support collective inquiry in order to determine success. A part of this is having a clear theory of action, providing staff with the appropriate skills to support collaborative learning, as well as fostering a culture of trust in which accountability for impact is shared.
