Teachers as Learners: 6 Great Professional Development Ideas | Edudemic

Teachers as Learners: 6 Great Professional Development Ideas | Edudemic | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

As professionals, teachers are required to complete a certain amount of professional development (PD) every few years to keep their certification current. Usually this PD looks like speakers coming to teacher’s meetings, or educators attending conferences or taking courses at a local college. While these opportunities are ways to advance their craft, many teachers find that they don’t get much as they should from sitting in meetings or classes.
