Respect and trust are the bedrocks of a successful personalized professional learning initiative. Watch this webinar to hear more about this and key findings from the recent Personalized Professional Learning Survey.

In this recorded webinar, Intersections in Education Consulting’s Callie Turk shared an overview of the results from the 500+ responses from educators to this recent survey. Action steps for building trust and respect into the professional learning process also were presented. Topics included:

  • Do teachers and principals trust the process that surrounds personalized professional learning?
  • In what ways do teachers feel (dis)respected?
  • What can districts do to make progress on these intangible goals?

Callie was joined by Nader Twal from the Long Beach Unified School District’s Office of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development. Nader discussed his district’s efforts to develop empathy upfront in the professional learning design process. He also presented his district’s use of data for showing trust and respect for teachers by making meaningful connections between teacher development and student learning.

Learn how to build trust, respect, and empathy into the professional development program at your school or district. This recorded webinar is designed for K-12 district leaders including Assistant Superintendents and Directors of HR, Educator Effectiveness, Professional Development, and Instruction as well as school principals, across all grade levels.

Get a head start by checking out highlights from the survey.
