Shifting from Ed Tech Professional Development to Professional Learning | faculty dev | Scoop.it
Professional learning recognizes the individual contexts of each teacher – the needs, challenges, and goals. In short, teacher’s VOICE must be heard. Moreover, professional learning activities must be something authentic or applicable to their present situations

Mark Jarvis's insight:
KEY PARAGRAPH: This suggests that the best professional development may come from their peers, not from outside consultants. Empowering individual faculty members and others on campus — including, perhaps, students, because students are often more nimble and agile than many on staff — to use and train others how to use a particular platform not only saves money on training costs, it promotes buy-in. And, as an added benefit, it provides leadership opportunities for individuals on campus who may not traditionally get the opportunity to be seen as a leader, which shows them they are valued by administration.

15 Recommendations for Designing and Delivering Effective Conference Presentations | Faculty Focus | faculty dev | Scoop.it

As a college faculty member, you speak to audiences both large and small on a daily basis. You know how to deliver information, create learning opportunities, and build engagement. And yet, presenting at a professional conference brings a whole new set of challenges. How do you establish credibility and authority among your peers? How do you make your session relevant for those who, unlike your students, have at least some familiarity with the topic?

Mark Jarvis's insight:

SOCIALIZATION: Learning is socially constructed—this is true for faculty members as well as for students. To create a comfortable social environment in the college’s professional development offerings where collegial relationships are built and risk-taking is welcomed, refreshments are included and table conversation around shared pedagogical issues is encouraged. Yee and Hargis (2012, 67) noted that “explicit efforts to offer faculty development programming benefit directly from an emphasis on socialization.”
