Stephanie Hirsch’s has written an item on the Learning Forward blog site titled A glimpse into Canada’s practices helps us examine our own.
Selected from the blog:
“Learning Forward recently commissioned and supported a study on the state of professional learning in Canada. You can read about the study as well as the reports and papers resulting from it in the February 2017 issue of The Learning Professional.”
“Canada figures prominently in another study. The school system in British Columbia was highlighted in Beyond PD: Teacher Professional Learning in High-Performing Systems, the 2016 report from the National Center on Education and the Economy that examines teacher professional learning in four high-performing systems and provides evidence that continuous professional learning deeply embedded into the framework of schools is fundamental to student success.
