Leading Professional Learning: Building Capacity Through Teacher Leaders provides practical tools, examples, and processes for developing, implementing, and evaluating systems of job-embedded professional learning led by teacher leaders. Developed by ASCD faculty member and author Judy Carr, the course provides a necessary alternative to older “train the trainer” models of professional development. Instead, it emphasizes sustainable approaches to long-term capacity building. This deep professional learning leads to routine use of essential practices in classrooms and schools. In this PD Online course, Carr defines job-embedded professional learning and identifies approaches to needs assessment that highlight professional learning needs within a school. She provides guidance and criteria for the identification and selection of teacher leaders, including examples of learning with colleagues in a job-embedded system. The examples cover action research and other study groups, collaborative planning of lessons and assessments, and differentiated professional learning in which teachers engage with and provide feedback to one another.

The importance of designing assessment systems and knowing where and when to collect useful data are explained. Learners will evaluate classroom assessments and learn to develop rigorous assessment items. Finally, standards based grading systems are explored as a means to accurately reporting student mastery of content standards.

The demands and challenges of the 21st century require innovations on the part of teachers, administrators, schools, and communities to fully prepare students for college, career, and beyond.  Educators who take on the whole child approach, which aims to ensure that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, set the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and provide students with the opportunity for long-term success. In this PD Online course, ASCD looks at how this approach works in relation to a school’s culture and climate, curriculum and instruction, assessment, classroom management, and outside of the classroom practices. After being introduced to the whole child approach, participants will have the opportunity review characteristics of it while comparing and contrasting their current professional practices with the approach through assessments, articles from Educational Leadership as well original readings for this course, videos featuring noted education experts, and applications to implement new ideas and strategies.
