Need a Topic for your Opening PD? Why not Ed Camp or Un-Conference it?!

You may have heard something about an Ed Camp or an Un-Conference but if you haven't had the good fortune to attend one you might not be sure what they are or how they function. The concept is perfect for professional development in an ISD, a school district or within one school building. All it takes is the willingness of a teaching staff to share their "best stuff" and to participate as active learners. A number of schools have been experimenting with this concept with rave reviews from teachers and administrators alike!

Opening Staff Meeting and PD

Last year I posted this article and I noticed it trending again on our website. I looked it over and still feel that it offers some good ideas and advice. I’ve updated it a little based on some things I’ve found recently. I hope it is helpful as you begin your planning for when the teacher’s return!
