EDUX SUMMER COURSE

EDUX 9972: Innovative Professional Learning

Positively impact student achievement with strategic, creative,
and flexible planning.

Course Rationale

"A program is not about the number of hours of formal learning, but about the nature of the learning itself. It may be informal or formal, but it must include application, analysis, reflection, coaching, refinement, and evaluation of effectiveness to produce results for educators and students." J Killion

High quality professional learning should be sustained, intensive, job embedded, collaborative, and data driven.
