It’s always felt a bit strange to me that schools would designate a particular timeslot and location for a Professional Development (PD) ‘session‘.
So, when we are not in this ‘session’, what is it that we are doing – if not developing professionally?
I wonder what would happen if we could transition from a concept of traditional PD ‘sessions‘ to ‘ongoing‘ or ‘permanent‘ PD? Would this help us shift to seeing ourselves as constantly growing, learning and developing?
But perhaps we’re too busy for this? Easier, probably, to just keep professional development contained in its little ‘session‘.
