PD Design Elements: Engaging Teachers in Professional Learning

Good pedagogy is a critical component of learning -- regardless of age. If we want to design professional learning that is effective and makes an impact on student outcomes, we must ensure we’re engaging our adults in the same way we would any student. Presented by Michelle Blanchet, this module discusses the role of the facilitator in creating meaningful learning experiences for our educators. It includes some basic design elements that make for engaging professional learning so you can create greater impact for both teachers and students.

Priorities for establishing a classroom environment full of respect and rapport, a culture for learning, and organizing the physical space include the teacher's ability to create an atmosphere for students that is not only safe and comfortable, but gives all students the feeling of success. Teachers and students begin to work together to establish routines, behavior management strategies, and every-day procedures that work while constructing a caring and warm space, fostering a professional learning setting for all parties involved  As a result, there is mutual respect, understanding, and ultimate success for both teachers and students.
