Bringing Effective Professional Development to Educators
Reese, Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n6 p38-43 Sep 2010
Career and technical education (CTE) teachers, through ongoing professional development, gain a deeper understanding of the content they teach, stay informed of the latest research, and ensure that the skills they teach are aligned to the most current workplace standards. Professional development has long been a part of educators' lives, but the Internet has brought new ways for delivering it. While teachers may still participate in summer workshops, attend conferences of their professional organizations, and work toward advanced degrees, there are now many new sources of professional development available to them. Webcasts and Webinars, statewide Web-based applications and a plethora of sessions--many through which they can earn credentials--are just some of the tools available to educators at the click of a mouse.
