ASSESSING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT NEEDS
How close are you to being a truly 21st century school? Are your classrooms,
your curriculum, actually 21st century? What do 21st century schools,
classrooms, teachers, students and curriculum look like? How can we get to that
place with our schools? See our article,
What is 21st Century Education?
What type of professional development is needed to help your staff achieve
the vision you have for where your school should be? Is your vision of
your school well-defined, and is it truly understood and supported by all
stakeholders? Is there a mission statement which guides all your planning? How does professional staff development fit into this plan, vision and mission?
Please see our
Professional Development Needs
Assessment survey tool to help focus on your specific professional
development needs. This is in PDF format. If you prefer to
print directly from this web site you can also find the
form online. You may prefer to
just print out and use the Scoring Guide to use for the assessment tool.
It depends on your learning styles and preferences. Take a look at both
forms, and use the one you prefer.
