Making Professional Development A Habit - TeachThought

Making Professional Development A Habit - TeachThought | Professional Development | Scoop.it

"Learning is lifelong, continual. In order to have true professional development, participants have to get together and commit to continue sharing the learning.

 

Professional development must stay in the rotation on a permanent basis. It must be calendared in as we would an important appointment–it’s an appointment with ourselves. In a way, it’s a lot like physical fitness. Many people fail to reach physical fitness goals because they do not have the right approach. By committing to work out regularly, doing a favorite activity, and maintaining positive consistency, you will see improvements in all areas–not just physical. Professional development is the same thing."

While it seems logical that teachers would realize the importance of continued professional development, this article reminds us that we must plan to grow professionally and that it is the educator's responsibility to know their options and learning style.  Thanks for a great, inspiring article.

Learning is not just about a person developing themselves individually, it is also learning together - by sharing the learning

After all, we are all lifelong learners.
