Strategic Use of Staff, Budget and Time to Provide Effective Professional Development
You have the staffing and budget- now how do you use those effectively to maximize professional growth opportunities for your staff? How are you creative with maximizing time to provide professional development for our teachers. In this session, you will hear how one school creatively used staff, budget and time to provide a variety of professional learning activities for teachers. These opportunities include collaborative planning sessions, coaching,co-teaching, co-planning and peer scoring of student work. A set of guiding questions and considerations that were used to build the professional development model will be presented and discussed by workshop participants. Workshop participants will leave with ideas to take back to their school teams to discuss and questions to evaluate current practices.
