Professional Learning Doesn’t Have to Suck!
It’s no secret and it should come as no surprise to anyone that Professional Development for educators has a bad rap. And justifiably so! What most teachers are offered as PD opportunities are thin, sporadic, and do little to improve their teaching. It’s typically disjointed one-offs offered at inopportune times and locations. That system is broken and obsolete. But there is an alternative!
Join our instructional design experts as they show you how School Improvement Network’s learning team is transforming traditional flat, ineffective training into engaging, interactive and delightful learning experiences that actually offer professional support in an effective way that can change teaching and boost student learning.
