  • Materials:Slide #5.Facilitator:Explain the difference between professional learning and professional development. Use the Overview, p. vi, as a reference.Professional learning refers to educators’ continuous learning that is a routine part of their daily practice. Professional learning occurs most often when small teams of colleagues share collective responsibility for student success. Learning teams meet at school, during the school day, and support educators in strengthening and refining their practice to increase student achievement. This kind of professional learning reduces instructional variance across classrooms, taps the expertise within the staff, is immediately applicable and relevant to educator practice, and engages educators in learning with and from one another.
  • CAN THIS BE OUR GOAL? WHAT WOULD THAT LOOK LIKE IN YOUR SCHOOL?
  • RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND STUDENT RESULTS1.When professional learning is standards-based, it has greater potential to change what educators know, are able to do, and believe.2.When educators’ knowledge, skills, and dispositions change, they have a broader repertoire of effective strategies to use to adapt their practices to meet performance expectations and student learning needs.3.When educator practice improves, students have a greater likelihood of achieving results.4.When student results improve, the cycle repeats for continuous improvement. This cycle works two ways: If educators are not achieving the results they want, they determine what changes in practice are needed and then what knowledge, skills, and dispositions are needed to make the desired changes. They then consider how to apply the standards so that they can engage in the learning needed to strengthen their practice.
  • Materials:Handout 2.2 and Slide #8.Facilitator:Handout 2.2 summarizes the relationship between professional learning and student results.Suggested comments:Professional learning that improves student results needs to be high-quality, as described in the standards, in order to have any effect on teacher or student learning. Quality, effective professional learning is not accomplished through a one-shot workshops but through collaborative, job-embedded, and ongoing development that builds educators’ knowledge, develops skills, and supports implementation. We will focus on the relationship between professional learning and student results in a brief conversation. Find a metaphor you could use to explain this concept to others.Facilitator:Invite table teams to share their metaphors.
