  • Professional Development
    • The Fifth Discipline , Peter Senge
    • Senge defines learning communities as places “where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together" (p. 3)PLNs (Professional Learning Networks)
  • Personal Learning Network
    • Personal Learning Network
    • The Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement states the two fundamental requirements for a PLC:
    • Knowledge is situated in the day-to-day experiences of teachers and is best understood through critical reflection with others who share the same experiences (Haar, 2003; Vescio, Ross, & Adams, 2006).
    • Actively engaging teachers in PLCs will increase their professional knowledge and enhance student learning (Vescio, Ross, & Adams, 2006).
  • Community of Designer’s
    • Faculty Development by Design, Integrating Technology in Higher Education , Mishra, Koehler, and Zhao
    • A Community of Designers is an approach to professional development that asks teachers to “focus on a problem of practice and seek ways to use technology (and thereby learn about technology) to address the problem.”  “By participating in these communities of design, teachers build something that is sensitive to the subject matter (instead of learning the technology in general) and the specific instructional goals (instead of general ones). Therefore, every act of design is always a process of weaving together components of technology, content, and pedagogy.”
