Connecting and Communicating Your Ideas
Developing a solid professional learning (PL) strategy is key to achieving your goals. By organizing and presenting all the components of the PL strategy cohesively into your course, you create a resource for participants that is easy to navigate and demonstrates how all the pieces fit together. Addressing the five key principles of effective PL, considering the audience's needs, and providing ongoing support for teachers during the implementation stage can foster collaboration, effective modeling, and self-directed learning. Outlining a schedule and providing resources can also help to improve teaching practice and student learning outcomes.
