How Should Professional Development Change?

“Professional Development in Other CountriesThe Shanghai teacher and Singapore teacher ratios of teaching time to collaboration time reveal even larger disparities. The Shanghai teacher reported teaching 15 hours a week and collaborating 7.5 hours a week. The Singapore teacher spends 18 hours teaching and 15 hours collaborating each week. Spending so much time collaborating with other teachers every week is not a reality for U.S. teachers who feel lucky to chat with their colleagues at lunch or in biweekly faculty meetings.The differences in professional development systems do not end here though. In Singapore, teachers are expected to do 100 hours of professional development (paid by the ministry of education) every year. That would be 500 hours in five years. In Shanghai, teachers are expected to do a minimum of 360 hours of professional development every five years -- compare that to the mere 120 hours of professional development that is typically required of U.S. teachers every five years.”Learn more:- http://gustmees.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/is-your-professional-development-up-to-date/

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 13, 2014 3:29 PM

Simple and effective! I like the four different components, especially 3 and 4. We sometimes focus too much on 1 and 2. Making it "Real" is important as it helps to see how things will actually unfold. Making it "Satisfying" speaks to how we sometimes make plans that fulfill the "Get it done" category but do not fulfill the deeper connections.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
