  Professional Development Model

How do we customize consulting & coaching in a culture of “drive by”workshops, once a year conferences, fly in/fly out consultants?

Demands of New Forms of Professional Development in a New World

Schools are struggling to keep up with the demands of curriculum design and upgrades to prepare students for modern skills and emerging literacies. Professional Development needs to offer opportunities for teachers to transform these experiences and redefine their own learning and in consequence their teaching.

The teacher must see himself/herself as a learner, since he/she is on uncharted territory as well in our ever changing (digital) world. Key competencies and literacies, such as global, media, network, information literacy and digital citizenship amplify our traditional notion and expectation of basic literacy in education. In addition to the traditional content knowledge we are expected to teach/learn in schools, we must include learning how to learn.

Self-Propelled Professional Development

Sharing means amplification and amplification means spreading good practices, reaching more people and connecting beyond our own limitations of zip codes and language barriers.

The PD model relies heavily on self-propelled, self-directed and self motivated professional learners to put new learning practices into action, document, reflect, receive feedback, and keep redefining learning in and out of the classroom. Participants will be building a learning network, share their practices, successes and failures to benefit the school community, including parents, colleagues and students.
