Actually, these are strengths... everything  could be strengths used/reframed  smartly... I mean really usages, not only renaming... please, let's be serious... like it...:-))) What we always have in abundance (and what we are always hiding or trying to hide) they are our character flaws... diamond-mine, isn't it? ...:-)))

Facilitation, and how it can add value

Facilitation, and how it can add value | Learning Group | Scoop.it
What is facilitation?

The word facilitation is derived from the Latin ‘facile’ which, simply translated, means ‘to make easy’.  A facilitator is therefore someone who makes something easy for others.  So how is facilitation different from other professional services that might also make something easier, such as consultancy, training or mediation?  And how is facilitation different from other group leadership roles, such as chairing?  Clarity of definition can help to manage expectations on the sides of the client, the group and the facilitator, and so achieve better outcomes.

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly | Learning Group | Scoop.it

Imagine if we taught pilots to fly without ever letting them in a cockpit. Or gave them the keys to a commercial airplane without the required hours—or years—of hands on training and practice. Sure, we’d show them plenty of PowerPoint presentations and make them sit through a few seminars on the theory and physics of flight, but then we’d slap on a graduation cap and let them take off into the big blue sky. Not only would it likely be ineffective, it would be borderline criminal. Yet when it comes to professional development for classroom teachers, that’s almost exactly what we do.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 10, 10:50 AM
In this article, learning and training are somehow interchangeable. Learning is a human process which involves imagining what the meaning is in what is being learned. Training is a checklist process used in industrial settings where we go through the prescribed steps. The two are not the same thing, Having said this, good learning should help us fly and take off in new and adventurous ways. @ivon_ehd1
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 10, 4:25 PM

PD is vital for teacher growth and sustainability yet it is often undervalued and often is not focused on what individual teachers need but, instead, on generic ideas and concepts or on "feel good" presentations about topics that are nebulous and non-specific like using technology or implementing reading programs. A shift is needed to move PD towards a growth mindset that focuses on how individual teachers can improve their teaching by beginning where they are as a teacher and sharing their ideas and growth with other teachers. It's not about presentations, even by "real teachers in real classrooms" but about change for individual teachers through support and collaboration of other teachers who also have a growth mindset.
