Professional development is helpful, but the way it is designed is not always helpful. While educators are encouraged to design learner-centered environments and provide learners with voice and choice, learning opportunities for educators do not always look this way. In a world where educators need to learn future-ready tech tools and tips to design engaging learning environments for their students, it is critical that the precious time they have for PD is productive and impactful. In this session, we will explore ways leadership and coaches can design educator-centered PD, taking lessons from some of the PD formats we were forced to utilize from the pandemic, and how those modalities can have a lasting impact. Examples will include podcast PD, virtual coaching sessions, gamified PD, and credentialing. Attendees will walk away with practical ideas, and an opportunity to plan to implement these tips in their role.
