I have recently volunteered within by school to lead our professional development program. I am hoping to move away from a professional development program in which one person presents an area of interest to the community to one that is more collaborative in nature. It is my goal to create a community in my school that is more focused on collaborative inquiry that shares leadership and ownership of problem solving, problem finding, and pedagogical advancement within the school to drive meaningful change that represents the values and ambitions of all the stakeholders and promotes knowledge building for professional learning.
I would greatly appreciate any guidance with this endeavor, as well as the sharing of experiences and resources to assist myself, and us all in creating effective PLCs.
