We’re continuing this month’s theme of learning together with a solo show. On this episode of The Coaching Podcast, I’m giving you my in-depth PD planning process, from start to finish.

I explain my step-by-step system for planning PD and give you real-life examples of what it looks like on campus. You’ll learn about setting PD goals, building a professional learning calendar, and choosing learning targets. Listen for tips to get started and ideas for following up with teachers.

This episode is full of valuable information to help you plan a PD session that your teachers will love. You’re going to want to take notes so you can remember all the details.

After listening to this episode, I hope you’ll try out some of the tips and ideas I mention. I’d love to know what you tried and how it worked for your school. You can let me know by sending me an email or sharing on Instagram.
