Reflections

Professional development is, perhaps, an ideal time for critical reflection. This is an opportunity to STOP, THINK and DISCUSS with others. Some would call this "active learning." It's active when there is opportunity to reflect. Sometimes, the opportunity can present itself with a question. Sometimes, it is the "a ha" moment. Reflection is a start to and for improvement. Professional development should promote reflection. Reflection leads to improvement.

After all, isn't improvement (whether in teaching or learning) one measure of the impact of professional development?
