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.
