Learning is a process, not an end goal; and excellent educators are learning, too.

PDEducators in CPS benefit from the coaching and expert advice of experienced peers through our District Instructional Support Educator model. Instructional Support Educators gathered on March 9th for a workshop with Gene Thompson-Grove focused on strategies for creating transformative adult learning experiences.

These coaches, lead teachers and teachers-in-charge regularly lead workshops and trainings in their schools and departments as part of their work supporting classroom teachers.

The goal of our work with Ms. Thompson-Grove is to build a culture of collaboration aimed at replicating best practices found across the district. We believe that building shared responsibility for meeting the needs of all learners will positively transform student learning experiences.

The District Plan Framework identifies “ongoing, engaging and transformative learning for staff” as the foundation that is necessary to put in place in order to strengthen instruction for students in our classrooms.

Part one of this two-part workshop included understanding adult development and structuring and designing experiences to facilitate deep learning. Part two will focus on designing learning agendas that provide opportunities for feedback from peer learners.
