Want a more successful strategy for professional development? Think 'online.' Rather than standing before a group that may or may not want to be there, you'll provide challenging activities and produce a set of valuable resources and lessons.
- Create your own online courses where teachers collaborate and develop lessons together.
- Develop an online community where your teachers answer questions and reflect using discussion boards and Weblogs.
- Create a Web site with links to valuable curriculum resources and other online professional development resources.
- Encourage your teachers to post useable lessons, projects, and resources.
After a while even the most resistant will see the advantage of PD, Cyber-variety.
