  1. What makes you want to attend certain PD? Interest? Credit? Collaboration? Certificate? Delivery? Technology use? What else?

  2. Let’s talk about the various ways you get your professional learning and PD hours ~ describe how you get your PD, what other ways could be added?

  3. We talk about “individualized” learning for our students, should that be translated to individualized PD? In what ways?

  4. Please share your thoughts about the possibility and reasons for all PD to include opportunities for SCECHs/credit, certificates? Should all PD?

  5. Who should design your PD plans? [why/why not?] Does your #miched count as PD? Any self directed learning included?
