About this title

Synopsis:

We interrupt this program to bring meaningful change to professional learning!

Big ideas can sometimes get stuck on the way to becoming real change. The authors explain the secret to getting unstuck: interrupting the status quo of traditional activity-based professional development to help educators embrace permanent changes in thinking and behavior. You can enable true learning by:

  • Building a focus on learning, collaborative inquiry, and formal and informal instructional leadership in schools
  • Recognizing the psychological processes involved in adult learning, and overcoming the psychological biases and barriers to change 
  • Using tools and strategies such as critical friend relationships, learning conversations, task sheets, and protocols
