  • Need to select a different background for these opening slides.Session agenda (50 minutes total):Welcome & Intro (5 minutes)Agenda Overview – our time is divided roughly in half, starting with 2 cases studies to stimulate your thinking about STEM PD, followed by table discussions that can become the launching point for recommendations that inform STEM education leaders and advocates across the StateQuick Poll of Who is in the Room (Kathleen)What’s STEM PD 3.0? (Jim)Two Examples of on-line, on-demand PD for STEMCatalyst Academy (10 minutes)Click2SciencePD (10 minutes)Table Discussions / Brainstorming Groups by tableDiscuss one of three topics; record ideas - (15 minute)Rapid Reporting: One Big Idea is ______ (30 seconds per table - 10 minutes total)Wrap Up
  • Not sure we want to take time for this or not. Getting to know the audience- yes – I think we should do this.What is your role (trainer, coach, site director, frontline staff)?How are you currently doing professional development with staff? Who uses coaching? Staff meetings? Formal training opportunities?How many of you are currently conducting professional development focused on STEM implementation?

  • We’re using the phrase PD 3.0 just to be provocative. There is no definitive definition of what it is – but it is meant to underscore the need to think about new models of professional development that can reach MORE educators and can fill the gaps in STEM PD capacity we’re facing in this country – and around the world.We all know that good professional development is more than an event – it is a process of learning and continuous improvement designed to advance the practice of an individual or team of practitioners.As with the shift from web 1.0 to web 2.0 to web 3.0, we can now create professional learning opportunities that are more personalized, more professionally (socially) connected, and better adapted to the high demand, high stress profession of teaching, both in and outside of schools.
  • Online Professional Development is valuable because it affords trainers and participants the chance to apply a “blended approach,” weaving face-to-face learning with further reflection, support and planning on an as-needed, at-your-own-pace basis. The online environment breaks down barriers of time and place to deepen PD, but it still requires a commitment on the part of the practitioner to advance their practice.Are there other slides we want to add here about PD 3.0?Given the time we have, I think we add this as a comment to the Web 3.0 slide.

Which specific organizations, including your own, can benefit from these examples of STEM PD 3.0? What would be the things you need to do that more effectively? What are the next steps you need from us to make that happen? MORE NETWORKS OF OPPORTUNITIES: You’ve just heard two case studies that provide examples of innovations in STEM PD. What are some other exemplary models of STEM professional development you’ve seen in and beyond California, online or on-ground? To help CSLnet create an expanded network of opportunities for STEM PD 3.0 across California, list some of the top organizations/programs and why you believe their approach should be replicated or scaled. Include any reference URL’s, too, so we can easily share your recommendations.INCENTIVES AND RECOGNITION: Digital badges are a new form of “professional recognition” being used by organizations. Will this work? What, in general, are some of the “essential incentives” needed to encourage and enable wide-scale participation in STEM PD … and how can digital badges be linked to these professional incentives?
