Professional Learning through Practice
Ford, Jill
Kairaranga, v7 n1 p46-50 2006
This practice article explores the relationship between practice and professional learning. Are these two distinctly separate activities, competing for the time of a staff member, or are practice and learning linked? If so, what is the nature of this link and how can we best align professional learning with practice outcomes? Using an example from the everyday work of a GSE Special Education Advisor (SEA), this article explores how a professional might link learning and practice for improved student outcomes. It illustrates how learning might occur as a staff member reflects on day to day work challenges, sets related learning objectives, and chooses and uses a wide range of activities to learn through practice.
