No Learner Left Behind: Prioritizing Staff's Professional Development Needs
Robertson, Rachel; Hitzke, Staci
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n194 p8-11 Jul-Aug 2010
It's true that adults learn differently than children. They have real-life experiences, strong preferences, time constraints, competing priorities, and varied objectives. But, they also share some similarities. Training the adults who work directly with children is the best way to make a positive impact on the children. In this article, the authors discuss how to prioritize staff's professional development needs. They describe the role of center director as learning facilitator and list principles that serve as a guide for what will make the most impact to the staff's learning experiences. They also describe accessible opportunities to train staff and support staff development.
