Developing the Individualized Professional Development Plan. Participant's Guide and Workbook. Second Edition.
This workbook presents a process by which teachers and administrators can take responsibility for their own professional development and plan for a particular project in a systematic and thoughtful way. Users will first identify an "area of focus" (job-related project, responsibility, professional interest, or district goal) and then formulate a plan to address this area through self-analysis and development of objectives and specific outcomes for the area. An exercise is provided to help users anticipate and deal with potential barriers to meeting objectives. Resources are listed, and ways to determine possible costs are discussed. The workbook also presents guidelines for helping users determine the tangible and intangible benefits they, as well as their district, school, staff, and students can expect once their objectives are met.
