Moving NSDC's Staff Development Standards into Practice: Innovation Configurations. Volume I
National Staff Development Council
NSDC's groundbreaking work in developing standards for staff development has now been joined by an equally important book that spells out exactly how those standards would look if they were being implemented by school districts. An Innovation Configuration map is a device that identifies and describes the major components of a new practice--in this case, the standards--and details how it would be used in practice. The IC maps create a mental image of what each of the 12 NSDC Standards for Staff Development look like in practice when implemented by members of five different role groups--teachers, principals, superintendents, central office, and school boards. The IC maps differentiate what each role group does relative to the standards so that a rich picture of practice emerges for a school district.

[CD-ROMs]" (ED522581).]
