WRCCS Professional Learning Networks
Registration coming in September!
WRCCS Professional Learning Networks (PLNs) are a vibrant, ever-changing group of connections to which teachers go to both share and learn. These groups reflect our values, passions, and areas of expertise. PLNs are groups of colleagues, mentors, and professionals that you connect with to enhance your learning and take charge of your own professional development. It is an online community that allows you to personalize your needs and tap into a statewide wealth of knowledge.
PLNs are especially valuable in our new normal of education as we continue to educate children in a dynamic and ever-changing world. WRCCS PLNs will be organized around specific themes, but will provide you with a broader perspective on education—beyond your specific classroom, school building or district.
Why find your WRCCS Professional Learning Network?
Find and connect with thought partners that are in “the work” with you
Share and find resources & ideas
Collaborate on projects and lessons
Get specific support when needed
Although technology will be the vehicle to build connections, our PLNs will always be about relationships. WRCCS PLNs are meant to be a place for “just in time” learning, however, specific PLNs will be hosting organized online connections throughout the school year around various topics.
Please see the list of WRCCS PLNs:
Work-Based Learning Professional Learning Network
Equity and Justice in Schools Professional Learning Network
Project Based Learning Professional Learning Network
Charter School Governance Professional Learning Network
Virtual School Professional Learning Network
