BE008- Flipping Professional Development with Laura Conley
Host Eric Robertson and professional development technology facilitator Laura Conley discuss strategies for improving professional development activities for educators. As Conley shares her “flipped” approach to professional development, she advocates for promoting a sense of ownership among professional development participants by asking faculty what they need and designing sessions that respond to those needs. Based on strategies like working with faculty in small groups, developing workshop agendas with links to interesting technology resources, and asking faculty to prepare in advance for those workshops, Conley’s approach shifts the emphasis from presenters showing people what they can do to faculty exploring shared interests in a focused and productive environment. This discussion of flipped professional development also includes descriptions of effective but easy to learn online tools like Evernote, thinglink, and Pictochart and concludes with an invitation to further explore Conley’s ideas via her twitter account (@lconley86) and her new web site flipped-pd.com
