How Should Professional Development Change?

“ Professional Development in Other Countries The Shanghai teacher and Singapore teacher ratios of teaching time to collaboration time reveal even larger disparities. The Shanghai teacher reported teaching 15 hours a week and collaborating 7.5 hours a week. The Singapore teacher spends 18 hours teaching and 15 hours collaborating each week. Spending so much time collaborating with other teachers every week is not a reality for U.S. teachers who feel lucky to chat with their colleagues at lunch or in biweekly faculty meetings. The differences in professional development systems do not end here though. In Singapore, teachers are expected to do 100 hours of professional development (paid by the ministry of education) every year. That would be 500 hours in five years. In Shanghai, teachers are expected to do a minimum of 360 hours of professional development every five years -- compare that to the mere 120 hours of professional development that is typically required of U.S. teachers every five years.” Learn more: - http://gustmees.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/is-your-professional-development-up-to-date/

Without choice and voice, professional development might be training which is for seals and not human beings.

The moral of the story is that teachers need to respect the individuality of their learners and teach creatively applying common sense.
