Join UW's Teacher Education by Design for a two-day workshop in which we’ll think together about designing and facilitating professional development that is closely connected to teachers’ day-to-day classroom practice. We will consider how to weave coherent teacher learning opportunities into existing school structures, such as PLCs and early release days, as well as potential new models for professional learning that take place within the school day. Participants will learn about and try out strategies for facilitating job-embedded professional learning, like Facilitating Collaborative Planning and using “Teacher Time Out.” Participants will have time to plan next steps and consider implications for their unique context with support and feedback from facilitators and peers.
This workshop is designed for instructional coaches, professional development providers, and school and district administrators who are committed to creating coherent, ongoing, job-embedded, content-focused professional development experiences for PK-12 teachers. The workshop will be relevant across grade levels and content areas. Additional content-specific resources beyond the workshop are available on this website.
Cost: $225 registration fee includes a light breakfast and lunch on both days as well as all workshop materials. Clock hours are available.
