If you’re responsible for providing professional development for educators, and you want support in creating and leading great workshops, Lisa Van Gemert and I have something for you!
We’re calling it PD Takeout.
It’s a hybrid professional development model, combining content created by us with a locally-facilitated discussion that focuses on your district’s specific needs. You lead your teachers through the day using our resources, adjusting the pacing and focus as you see fit.
We build it, you run it 🙂 It’s professional development to go!
Modules come with:
- Video of us presenting the content
- PowerPoint so you can also present or review information
- Activities, readings, and discussion prompts
- A facilitation guide for you to run the module
To start with, we have 6 one-hour modules for introducing the Depth and Complexity prompts. You can combine these for a full-day, or break them up however you want. Naturally, we’ll be expanding the library in the future with more courses from us, as well as our friends and colleagues.
What About Gifted Guild?
If you’re wondering how this fits in with Gifted Guild (our online PD courses), soon they’ll be part of the same brand! In fact, PD Takeout was born out of feedback for Gifted Guild — many folks wanted to be able to run those courses with an in-person group – thus PD Takeout was born.
In short, Gifted Guild is an independent, 100% online model while PD Takeout is for in-person groups and looks more like a traditional workshop.
