What is Professional Development?

Educators have a professional responsibility not only to maintain a certain level of knowledge in teaching but also to look for new and exciting innovations in getting their students engaged in their own learning and development. Educators in every grade attend workshops, conferences and professional learning groups, or simply dialogue with each other, observe each other teaching and plan projects together. All of these are part of a continuous and effective professional development program. It is an essential part of the teacher’s work and must be taken seriously. Professional development needs to be supported and encouraged at the individual level, school level and at the divisional level.
