Webinar Overview Our Process: What does the research say about successful teacher development? "Teachers who participated in sustained curriculum-based professional development reported changes in practice that, in turn, were associated with significantly higher student achievement scores on state assessment." (Darling-Hammond, 1999) Tips for Success Feedback suggests teachers like something they can try right out of the box

Got their feet wet in activity which they then refined to their preferences

Make sure specific examples, new teachers have only content knowledge as their schema! Platforms used Easy and Practical Professional Development Webinars: "...the degree of professional development to which teachers are exposed is strongly linked to both inquiry-based teaching practice and investigative classroom culture." (Supovitz, Mayer and Kahle, 2000). "When school-wide programs (PD) were compared with teacher-specific programs (by content), the former had the least effect on students' learning" (Mary Kennedy, 1999) "When comparing programs focused on subject matter, or how students learn the subject, with programs which focus on pedagogy, the former had the greatest impact on student learning" (Mary Kennedy, 1999) Picked pedagogical focus

Targeted topic based on calendar

30 minute webinar

Picked one activity to try as team

observed by IC

Brought back student work

Looked at observation, anecdotal and student data to refine practice

Repeated with new topic and focus CIF Viewing as a group lead to discussions with each other not just presenter, shut the laptops and project as group Choose at least one activity as group to try and come back and discuss within a timeline

they all had a common language and activity to comment with

opened door for more implementation Doesn't have to be live
