Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education on Thursday, May 23, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET), for the seventh in its series of webinars for Project 24. This webinar will look at the role of ongoing professional learning for staff that can build the capacity to implement powerful personalized learning environments that prepare all students for college and a career.
Every school leader knows about the district that bought the expensive devices, which then sat unwrapped on shelves because of a failure to invest in quality professional development. In this webinar, the Project 24 panel of experts will share their lessons learned on how to integrate and embed powerful professional learning experiences for all teachers and staff. Michael King will explain how quality professional development plays a role in his school. Maribeth Luftglass will share lessons learned from a large-scale technology deployment, and Jennifer Barnett will share her perspective on what it takes to create an environment where teachers are empowered, collaborative learners.
The experts will also discuss the importance of having a wide range of opportunities for professional learning, as well as how to incorporate research-based strategies; make the most of peer-to-peer learning; and make professional development more goal oriented. Melinda George, vice president and chief operating officer of NCTAF, will moderate the discussion and panelists will address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
