Using Effective Professional Development Sessions to Implement Change in Curriculum and Classroom Practices: My Story as a Teacher at Exmouth District High School, WA's Remotest District High
Bedford, Susie
Education in Rural Australia, v15 n2 p31-39 2005
Teaching in a remote town has its drawbacks with regard to Professional Development (PD), which becomes extremely costly, so each staff member is probably limited to one decent PD once a year. This means choosing PD extremely carefully to ensure "value for money" and hopefully that it will provide the teacher concerned with knowledge/strategies/information/resources--some or all of which can be used or shared effectively back in the school and within the classroom. In this article, the author gives a snapshot of Exmouth District High School and its isolation and talks about using effective PD to implement change in curriculum and classroom practice.
