PBL UNIT: DESIGNING A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING DAY

Our PLP team used the process of Project-Based Learning to design our Professional Learning IP21 Edcamp.

#1 Begin with the End in Mind
To design and implement a successful IP21 EDCAMP: a K-12 Professional Learning day based on the unconference model.

#2 Craft the Driving Question
How can we engage our faculty and administrators in meaningful conversations about teaching and learning?

#3 Plan the Assessment
Faculty will complete an online survey to reflect on their personal learning as a result of their participation in the Edcamp.

#4 Map the Project
– Conversation strands
– Llogistics of the day: sessions, length of discussions
– Exploration of IP21(Individual Plans for 21st Century Teaching and Learning) faculty pages
– Compilation of exemplaries
– Assembling exemplaries within discussion strands
– Tapping facilitators to lead discussions
– Keynote and Closing Remarks ideas
– Teacher reflection form

#5 Manage the Process
– Collaborate: establish deadlines for completing each step of the project
– Communicate: virtual and face-to-face
– Create wiki, !P21 Edcamp agenda, resources and teaser
