14393 • Beyond the PowerPoint: Crafting Effective Professional Development Experiences for Educators - Cullowhee
Designed for those who regularly deliver staff development to faculty and/or staff.
Standard 1 of the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards reads, “Teachers demonstrate leadership”. More and more, they are being asked to lead outside their classrooms by presenting new ideas or initiatives in their PLCs or at school and district-wide professional development sessions. This can be a daunting prospect. Teachers who wouldn’t flinch in the face of a roomful of hostile teenagers are paralyzed by the idea of that same room filled with their peers. Participants in this program will learn how to structure presentations for maximum engagement at the learning level of an adult audience.
