I would like to see more opportunities for follow up time to increase value and impact of the training already invested. This model could have:
Demonstration lessons inside real classrooms.
Focus on growth as in the article Navigating the Bumpy Road from
Encourage teachers to share and demonstrate their takeaways from a PD to other staff members. This can be a blend of Google Hangouts, Slack Channels or old school bulletin boards. The focus is on connecting and being comfortable with taking risks.
Have highly skilled Coaches guiding the development process on individual levels.
Spiral between implementation, follow up, review and new ideas.
