Professional Learning Standards

Standards for Professional Learning

Standards for Professional LearningIncreasing the effectiveness of professional learning is the leverage point with the greatest potential for strengthening and refining the day-to-day performance of educators.

The standards make explicit that the purpose of professional learning is for educators to develop the knowledge, skills, practices, and dispositions they need to help students perform at higher levels.

Professional learning that increases educator effectiveness and results for all students:

  • Occurs within LEARNING COMMUNITITES committed to continuous improvement, collective responsibility, and goal alignment.
  • Requires skillful LEADERSHIP that develops capacity, advocates, and creates support systems for professional learning.
  • Requires prioritizing, monitoring, and coordinating RESOURCES for educator learning.
  • Uses a variety of sources and types of student, educator, and system DATA to plan, assess, and evaluate professional learning.
  • Integrates into its LEARNING DESIGN, theories, research, and models of human learning to achieve its intended outcomes.
  • Applies research on change and sustains support for IMPLEMENTATION of professional learning for long-term change.
  • Aligns its OUTCOMES with educator performance and student curriculum standards.
