For too long our professional development systems have focused on the quality of the professional development "inputs" provided to teachers to improve their professional practice, with unfortunately little evidence of improvement or linkage to any "outputs" of a change in instructional practice. What would a shift from focusing on PD inputs to PD outputs entail and how will a competency-based approach using micro-credentials help education leaders implement these changes in their local environments?
In this webinar, Karen Cator, chief executive officer of Digital Promise and former director of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education, will lead a conversation with assistant state superintendents from the Florida, Tennessee, and Delaware Departments of Education to discuss:
Guests:Kathleen Airhart, chief operating officer and deputy commissioner, Tennessee Department of Education
Brian Dassler, deputy chancellor for educator quality, Florida Department of Education
Michael S. Watson, chief academic officer and associate secretary of education, Delaware Department of Education
This webinar will be moderated by Karen Cator, chief executive officer, Digital Promise
