EDUC 7741 - Designing Professional Development♦


(3 sem. cr.) Professional development that ensures quality teaching for all students is based on a model of continuous improvement that is data-driven and grounded in research-based practices. In this course, education professionals examine a variety of professional-development models and select and plan the most appropriate approach to support their goal. Using adult-learning theory as a foundation, they explore models of adult learning and change as well as cycles of improvement. They also design strategies to build strong professional-development programs that include planning, delivering, following-up, and evaluating impact on teacher practices and student learning.
