PD Workshop
Event Description
Mid- to late career teachers can struggle with finding professional development which is relevant and suitable for their needs. Often employers mandate training which meet the needs of the organization, but the mid- to late career teaching professional may require professional development that moves beyond standard offerings, inspires their teaching practice, and challenges them in new ways. This program will help teachers identify their professional development needs and delve into methods of self-directed professional development. Participants will be provided with an opportunity to experiment with a new strategy and reflect on new directions of professional learning in a supportive learning community. At the end of the program, participants will have a template for building a plan to continue their self-directed learning. Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to share and learn from fellow participants in a number of collaborative as well as asynchronous activities.
This is a paid event. $100 for members and $150 for non-members.
