Brief Session Description: To support innovation in classrooms, professional development should model similar next-generation instructional techniques. Blended and personalized professional development provides opportunities for collaboration, application, and additional support that extends past a traditional staff meeting. Additionally, rethinking the way adult learning is delivered in schools allows all staff to experience the benefits of innovative learning models. These experiences can then be applied to creating transformative student learning opportunities in the classroom. Follow one school district on a journey to blended and personalized professional development. Explore different techniques and strategies, hear tips for successful implementation, discuss ways to overcome barriers, and find a starting point that makes sense for your school or district.
