How many times have you sat through a professional development session that had little to do with your professional situation or learning needs? Research tells us that differentiated instruction leads to positive outcomes in the classroom, and teachers are no exception to this idea. That’s why it’s so important to know that what you’re learning is relevant, useful, and worthy of your time. Personalized professional development allows you to customize your professional development to ensure that the content is meaningful to you and fuels your passion for the art of teaching.
In this course, you will have the opportunity to create your own personalized professional development experience. You’ll develop your own goals, learning objectives, learning methods, and timeline for pursuing the knowledge and skills you need most for where you are in your career. Using an ePortfolio to track your journey, you will curate and build highly practical artifacts that will help you in a way that is authentic to you and your teaching situation. In addition, you’ll develop methods for sharing what you learn with others.
By the end of this course, you will learn how to leverage learning experiences that are
meaningful to you and create tools that you can start using in your classroom today.
