Event Description

Might a “Professional Development Day” be of value to students in your discipline? If so, hear from a team of elementary education professors who created and led three full-day professional development days that resulted from a collaborative, innovative teaching model that involved teacher candidates over the course of a semester. The professional development days centered on three topics central to teacher education. The goal was for teacher candidates to experience best practice through professors modeling strong collaboration, differentiation and co-teaching. Each student was part of a Professional Learning Community (PLC), which included a professor, with the goal of modeling and preparing teacher candidates for professional discourse.
