In May, when edWeb.net surveyed principals, personalized PD for teachers was the number one topic of interest. With all the responsibilities and tasks on principals’ plates, relevant, engaging PD focused on best practices can be extremely challenging.
In a recent edWebinar, Dr. L Robert Furman, principal of South Park Elementary Center in Pennsylvania, asked the question, “Why is it that when we think of PD, it becomes a comedy or a depression and teachers automatically assume that it is going to be a colossal waste of time?”
Personalized PD for teachers can alleviate these feelings because it gives teachers opportunities to be better teachers, which translates into improved student learning. Furman and the administrators in his school have completely revamped teacher PD by using curated webinars and accessible and relevant resources on edWeb.
