Professional Development is a Process, Not an Event!



Professional development (PD) can no longer just provide brief exposure to teachers of a concept or very basic knowledge about a teaching methodology. Instead, professional development MUST be a change in a teacher’s practice, leading to increases in student learning. izzit.org believes effective PD must also provide support for teachers to innovate new teaching strategies to meet the demands teachers seek to improve, such as:

Toolkit for effective teaching – Shaking up lessons: The how, what, and why this is necessary;

Innovative lesson plans – don’t leave home without them;

Collaboration, share the wealth;

and

Classroom of dreams – if you are effective, they will follow.
