Have It Your Way: Personalizing your Professional Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

If a restaurant can make a burger your way, why can't the professional development we offer to teachers meet their strengths, interests, and needs? In this session, participants will learn how one staff is provided the opportunity to select their professional development from a playlist of options to gain magical points towards recertification. After identifying how professional development has been presented in the past, participants will be divided into smaller groups. One group will spend time viewing the Belmont Ridge Personalized PD Google site and how artifacts can be submitted and stored in the digital warehouse. The other group will discuss possible activities their staff could participate to gain PD points. After 15 minutes, the two groups will switch. We will conclude the session by asking participants to complete a 3-2-1 exit activity and allow time for question and answer. Let's make professional development exciting, meaningful, and empowering. Pack up your woody (station wagon), wax your boards (keyboards that is), and join us as we surf the wave of personalizing professional development.
