  • ERIN
    (can also pull more stuff about participatory learning from the intro to the publication – pp. 5-6.) BUT keep it short because last time this slide took really long
    Also mention participation gap, as it relates to both students AND teachers
  • IOANA
    Genesis: mention DML 2011, diversity of WG members
    Goals:
    Provide a common forum for professional development conversations centered around participatory learning
    Foster interdisciplinary dialogue among vested audiences in participatory learning
    Identify synergy among members and facilitate learning from each other
    Construct a common framework for participatory models of professional development
    Extract best practices and lingering challenges in the field
    Build a collection of case studies exemplifying these best practices and share them with the larger community of stakeholders in participatory learning
    Questions raised:
    Goals: What do teachers want from a PD experience, as opposed to what is required of them? What are (or should be) the goals of PD?
    Participatory learning: What is the current role of teachers in the PD design process? How can we make this process more participatory so that it recognizes ownership, co-design and relevance? How do we transition from PD for to PD with?  
    Context and relevance: How do we properly account for various disciplines and different age groups while crafting versatile PD programs? What is the impact of short- vs. long-term investments in professional development?
    Media: What is the role of media and digital technologies in PD?
    Sustainability: How do we create an environment which sustains ongoing learning that teachers themselves can direct?
    Assessment: How do we best assess PD initiatives?

    Key insights:
    Beyond the rich examples and lessons learned from each of the case studies, one of the core take-aways from this project is the design guide on participatory models of professional development. This design guide had the double benefit of being useful to our wide audience (which includes a vast number of practitioners) and in the same time providing us with a common framework for the analysis and discussion of the case studies. Specifically, inspired by Barry Fishman’s work on design-based research, our framework suggests two levels of consideration: values and design principles
  • IOANA: Explain values based on descriptions in the publication


  • ERIN: Explain design principles based on descriptions in the publication


  • Introduce case studies, and give authors a few minutes to talk about their work (max 5 minutes)

  • IOANA and ERIN: Emphasize that even though it centers on individually-authored case studies, the working group and the resulting publication is a quintessentially collective effort, which all the group members helped shape
