Comments:

People from within are sensitive to one another's real needs, and can offer insight

on what works better than those coming in from the outside.

The best PD is conference attendance; national and regional conferences allow

the teacher to select their own sessions, or permit teachers to attend the same PD

, like AVID, with teachers from other schools. During school and after school PD is

an extra burden. PD days or sending a group to a 2-3 day conference is best.

PD is not (inter)departmental planning; PD is pedagogical enhancement and

detailed content acquisition.

Most PD provided in district does not meet the individual needs of the teacher

and winds up being a waste of time- you're just waiting for the piece that is

relevant to you and your students. Most publishers don't go deep enough and

rarely have enough deep information about the implementation of their products

because they frequently are teaching with the products in the classroom setting.

Most administrators are too out of touch with student's needs to provide

meaningful curricula PD.

High quality PD is usually found only by traveling to site where educators gather

for such development from presenters who do this professionally and

nationally/internationally. Local training and turnkey training are, at best,

watered down versions, often with an agenda for a currently popular initiative

- not high quality, well researched and substantiated instructional practices.

It’s horrible. And we’re so tired of having to write our ideas on charts and share

out.

Current student or classroom experience tends to produce the best PD.

What about PD developed by professional teachers in

Hard to answer because there could be poor, Fair or good for all categories

in a given year.

Most of our professional development consists of professional learning

communities. That is of dubious value. Some chairs are more effective

than others.
