In this Webinar

Professional development for learning must be about more than the facilitation of the actual professional learning event. What comes before and what comes after are just as important. During this webinar, Fred Ende discusses the importance of the three-phase approach, explore some key practices and considerations for effective PDL, and highlight what shifts and what stays the same when designing professional learning in a virtual space.
