What is PD?
“Professional development is
facilitated teaching and learning
experiences that are transactional and
designed to support the acquisition of
professional knowledge, skills, and
dispositions as well as the application
of this knowledge in practice…..
Key Components of PD include
characteristics and contexts of the
learners (i.e., the “who” );
a) content (i.e., the “what” of
professional development); and
b) organization and facilitation of
learning experiences (i.e., the
“how”).”
