In this webinar, Kate Bean, Executive Director of Aveson Charter Schools, challenges the way educators learn and provides a basis for developing Personalized Mastery Learning (PML) experiences that will transform educators’ views about their own learning, motivating them to experience Personalized Mastery Learning for themselves and be prepared to offer it to their students.
This webinar is about re-imagining professional development for teachers. In most districts, PD is based on a one-size-fits-all model of teaching without differentiation, little teacher input, and little choice.

Rachel, Larry, and Lisa talked about the pajama PD day that Rachel’s district held during a recent snow day. The teacher-leadership team in Rock Valley had already planned for a full day of professional development, but had to rethink their plans when the forecast called for a snowstorm.
