Getting Started: Designing Next Generation Professional Learning

Thursday, February 21, 2019, 3 p.m. Eastern

It’s difficult for educators to teach in ways they haven’t been taught. If we want educators to design next generation learning experiences for students, they need to know what it feels like as learners. There’s significant evidence that our existing professional development structures are not meeting the needs of educators or students. What would it look like if we transformed the traditional model of professional development into something much more flexible, engaging, and effective -- mirroring the types of experiences we want to cultivate for students? This webinar invites you to rethink professional development by playing an interactive game. In this webinar, you will:


  • Understand the limitations of our traditional professional learning model;
  • Envision what a transformed professional learning model could look like;
  • Engage in an experiential process to design a next generation professional learning experience; and
  • Walk away with an innovative professional development prototype you can use to jumpstart professional learning in your context.
