“the true value of the ‘total quality’ movement came not from tracking, but from involving workers themselves in using the data for self improvement.”  Using video as a tool for self reflection is powerful!

Making the Most of Professional Development Days

Making the Most of Professional Development Days | Tech-Savvy Education | Scoop.it
I am on my way to speak at another professional development day at a college. I do these events with misgivings—frequently persuading myself on the way home that I really shouldn’t be doing them.

Some time ago, a colleague and I reviewed the literature on interventions to improve instruction. If I were to do that paper again, I would pay special attention to those changes that improved student learning. The research we looked at then did not give workshops very high marks. If teachers changed, they did so right after the event, but soon reverted to their old ways of doing things
