A few weeks ago I asked all faculty and staff to answer the following questions:
What would you like to learn about?
What are you willing to teach others about?
How can we best sustain professional development in the coming years?
Please click the link to see the graphs and the raw data of mana’o shared by your colleagues:
What you want to learn about: The data showed that 38% of you are still interested in learning more tech followed by culture-based education integration and content-specific professional development (20%).
What you are willing to share with your colleagues: Technology ranks up there at 30% with 23% willing to provide content-specific professional development and 19% willing to show how they integrate culture-based education practices in their own classrooms.
How can we be innovative in providing PD: 55% of you put teachers teaching teachers as the top innovation strategy followed by creating partnerships in our community as well as within the KS system to take advantage of the sources of PD that are close at hand.
