Professional Learning

Professional learning is training and collaboration intended to help administrators, teachers, and other educators improve their professional knowledge, competence, skill, and effectiveness.

The key to improved learning for students is continuous high-quality learning for educators. Highly effective schools take extraordinary steps to build instructional capacity with teachers to ensure effective teaching occurs in every classroom, every day.

Professional Learning is most effective when it is:

  • Sustained over long periods of time
  • Supported by booster training, collaboration, and feedback
  • Connected directly to what teachers are actually doing in the classroom

Examples of Professional Learning:

  • Well-Managed Classroom Training
  • ASOT (Art and Science of Teaching) by Marzano
  • Healthy School Culture
  • Common Assessment Training
  • PLC (Professional Learning Community) Institute
  • Early Interventions in Reading Training
  • Template Training
  • Technology Integration Training (Google, Apple, iPad, Computer, etc.)
  • DIBELS Training
  • L to J Training
  • Sheltered Instruction Training
