Overview

Providing teachers with autonomy in their learning during professional development and in-service days is proving to be a successful strategy for today's school leaders. Using the models of Atlassian's "FedEx Days," Google's 20% time, and the "unconference" model inspired by Edcamps, school leaders can promote autonomy among their teachers with substantial learning outcomes. Learn how easy it is to design and implement this type of professional development day in your school. Join Lyn Hilt as she shares examples from schools that have successfully enjoyed these days of learning.

It would be great to have a principal who actually trusted teachers to use the time and took the responsibility to redirect those who didn't. PD would be so much more useful for all involved.

This was really wonderful. Please know that presented a whole new 'shift' in the PDP thinking that is practiced in my district. I am so grateful for your expertise and I will probably review this video again, as there were so many nuggets of truth and information.

Lyn always gives great webinars. I've been wanting to go this directions with PD and it was great to get some ideas on how to do it. I'll be looking for Daniel Pink's book as well!
