Workshop Study: A Modified Lesson Study Model for Analysis of Professional Development Opportunities
Rearden, Kristin T.; Taylor, P. Mark; Hopkins, Terri
Current Issues in Education, v8 n15 2005
The steps of implementing, analyzing, refining, and re-implementing a lesson is referred to as "lesson study." These steps formed the basis of a "workshop study" model that can be used to analyze a professional development workshop for the purposes of tailoring the content, resources, and collaborative efforts to better meet the needs of the participants. An initial offering of a workshop for middle school mathematics and science teachers was revised based on the evaluation and reflection by participants and instructional faculty. Based on participant feedback, the subsequent offering of the workshop more effectively met the goals set forth by the instructional faculty. (Contains 2 tables.)
