Learning Designs: Study, Learn, Design; Repeat as Necessary
Joyce, Bruce R.; Calhoun, Emily F.
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n4 p46-51, 69 Aug 2011
Designers reside mostly in school districts and schools and can have primary assignments of all sorts. In many districts, central office personnel are most visible on design committees, but teachers, principals, and superintendents are included. Members of professional learning communities can design their own processes, and individual teachers can, too. States do also. National organizations and commercial companies are increasingly designing distance courses. In this article, the authors outline three phases learning design teams move through to create high-quality professional development.
