Have you ever found yourself trapped in a seemingly irrelevant professional development session, sitting painfully, watching the clock slowly tick by while someone drones on at the front? You know the presenter is apparently supposed to be teaching you something that will help develop you as a teacher but you are clock watching. You feel like you are trapped in an 80s movie..
Recently I felt like this and I started to note down some ideas. I acknowledge Courous, Drucker and many others who inspired these thoughts. I think the key to good PD are some of the following:
- Links to Strategic Goals
- Transparent Sharing
In the coming weeks I will develop further on this idea.
