We as educators have all participated in mandatory and voluntary professional development throughout our tenure. If we asked you to recall some of the PDs you’ve attended, you’d likely recall one that left you puzzled or totally disconnected from your needs. You’d also hopefully reminisce about a PD that was relevant, engaging, practical, attainable and fun. Those memorable PDs are what we are all about. At Transform·Ed, we strive to provide you with experiences that are useful, applicable, fun and offer enough support to implement your best self and the content into the classroom ASAP. Harris, Graham and Adkins (2015) state that effective professional development includes creating classroom content, modeling techniques for teachers to use in their classrooms, and feedback on lessons. Have you been getting the bare minimum out of your PD? As you reflect on an awesome education PD, we leave you with this quote from one badass, Brené Brown:
“There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.”
