How educators learn has become as important as how students learn.
Current research on adult learners shows that to be effective, professional learning is job-embedded, collaborative, dynamic, and inquiry-based.
If you support educators or participate in this practice-grounded approach to professional learning, it’s important to understand the process itself and to appreciate the skills it demands from those who participate in it.
