Throughout my career as an educator I have been involved in many professional development workshops/seminars in which I took away very little from the experience. Today it seems harder than ever to motivate and engage staff in meaningful professional development. Even though I am satisfied with how I have planned my upcoming staff development day on 11/3, I am interested to hear everyone's thoughts about how teacher professional development should be structured. What are the essentials? What are the pitfalls? Is there a protocol that you or your district follows when making a decision on requests by teachers to attend off campus PD opportunities? Are teachers held accountable when they return from outside PD events?
