Event Description

Incorporate Personalized Professional Learning Opportunities that Fit into Busy Lifestyles and Foster Active Learning

Professional development has now been replaced with professional learning. The focus for any school should not be that students are taught, but that they are learning. To accomplish this, teachers have to continually grow and learn through active means of learning. Their continual professional learning is key to schools succeeding. And with today’s busy schedules and new technologies, it is important to incorporate ways to accommodate and facilitate professional learning opportunities that fit into our busy lifestyles. Is your teaching faculty in sync with professional learning standards and are you incorporating them in your busy schedules?

Professional development traditionally focused on providing educators with information. It did not allow for teachers to learn actively about educator technology or get details on how to handle specific classroom situations or participate in hands-on learning.

Join this session with industry veteran Dr. Andrea Hemphill who will help you understand the importance of professional learning, and show you how it is different than professional development. You will also learn what professional learning should be, how to create and provide fresh opportunities for hands-on professional learning, and learn about the top online courses, communities and networks for professional learning.

After attending the webinar, you will be able to incorporate, utilize and benefit from professional learning opportunities through online communities, networks and courses.
