Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development?

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development? | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

One Thing Employees Need (But Rarely Get)

One Thing Employees Need (But Rarely Get) | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Pay, benefits, training, opportunities: All important. But this is more important: self-respect.

 

If you want to be considered a great employer--and you certainly should--providing your employees with higher pay, better benefits, extensive training, and greater opportunities are definite factors.

 

The problem is you might not have the resources to do all that.

 

That's okay. You can still be a great employer, because one thing you can give your employees is more important.

 

Self-respect.

Do organizations' futures lie in the disruptive capabilities of individual employees? | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
