Webinar Description

Professional learning once was an invisible part of being a good teacher. But, today, how teachers learn matters as much as how students learn.

Current research on adult learners suggests that effective professional learning is job-embedded, collaborative, dynamic, and inquiry-based. If you lead or support educators in this evolving, practice-grounded approach, it’s important to understand the process itself and to appreciate the skills it demands from those who participate in it.

Join MaryEllen Vogt, co-author of Professional Learning in Action: An Inquiry Approach for Teachers of Literacy, for a webinar that will provide insights into this innovative model of professional learning. MaryEllen will share specific examples of how to implement inquiry-based professional learning in your elementary or secondary school. These new, collaborative strategies for both teachers and administrators are valuable for all professional staff at all grade levels.
