“We need more time!”, “We need time to apply what we learn.”, and “Professional development should be differentiated.” are common laments among educators about district-provided professional development. Can emerging technology provide what we need to make professional development more effective for teachers and students? Is the flipped learning model as viable for educators as it is for students? How can our library instructional programs embed professional development opportunities for educators? How can we measure the impact professional development has on student learning? Watch this webinar to explore best practices in 21st century professional development.
