Fall 2014 Campaign

Teacher Led Professional Development

Our proposal is to lead a movement to transform the way professional development is designed and implemented in education. Education is one of the only fields that relies on outside sources to develop the capacities and competencies of teachers. We spend billions on PD with little impact on outcomes.

 

Our approach is three-fold: 1) to build capacity among teachers. to this end we just unveiled a web site that can guide teachers to achieve teacher led PD; 2) Build awareness among teachers to demand and lead job-embedded professional learning, and; 3) implement these ideas into schools.

 

Here's our web site that was started by teachers and other support groups: http://teacherledprofessionallearning.org/
