  21. 21. Finally…  The PALM approach was premised on:  Designing professional development from the inside out  Sharing the learning facilitation and development across the TQR organisation  Understanding diverse learning needs and designing phased learning approaches (formal and informal)  Knowing and learning as an active supported and social process  Integrating information technology use across the organisation  Managing support and monitoring – buy-in from all stakeholders  Connecting to the identity of the new organisation  Leveraging the value of ‘ignorance’ as in admitting to not knowing and being able to ask for help – everything of value and creative comes out of not knowing Note: Educators are driven by passion, not by expertise. They, like all, are caught within their own assumptions but move beyond those of the present by being involved in learning as a social act.
