What’s your Professional Growth Plan?

I’m sharing David Truss‘s excellent post about flipping professional development. Many educators are starting to understand the flipped classroom movement, but how many have “flipped” their PD?

For those of us with PLNs (Personal Learning Network) that include the edu-blogosphere, Twitter, Nings, etc., David’s explanation of how he chooses his PD will seem very familiar. Certainly, I know I’m much more intentional with my professional development choices as a result of online discussion and anytime learning.

If you don’t have a robust PLN, I’d recommend starting one. For a quick explanation of just one reason why a PLN could make you a better professional, study this visual, and read David’s post.

    Wow, thanks for your kind words and thanks for sharing! I’ve actually been thinking even more about my 3rd point… empowering participants during the session.

    You said, ‘ I know I’m much more intentional of my professional development choices as a result of online discussion and anytime learning.’

    Well, that anytime learning doesn’t suddenly stop when we get into a pro-d session. What do we need to do to harness this more effectively?
