Evolving Teacher Evaluation to Keep Pace with Emerging Participatory PD Models


As teacher professional development shifts from an easy-to-measure, seat-based, "delivery" model to just-in-time, teacher-initiated, collaborative and online approaches, teacher evaluation methods need to adapt to keep pace. In the Connected Educator Month closing panel, "Giving Credit Where Credit is Due", moderator Tom de Boor summed up one of the key challenges in PD today with this question: 

"What can we do to help educators get the credit and enable administrators to understand that they need to recognize this [new approach] and give educators the tools in order to do it effectively?" 

Our guest panelists work at the leading edge of the new, teacher-driven, collaborative and remixable PD. Join Connected PD moderator Claudia L'Amoreaux and NROC's Director of Research and Development, Ruth Rominger, to explore creative new approaches to teacher evaluation.
