Discussion: From Professional Development to Student Outcomes

dates: 2/4/1998 - 4/22/1998
description: This was a multifaceted discussion running from February to April of 1998; it invited evaluators as well as PIs, Co-PIs and lead staff to take part. We began by examining the link between professional development and increased student learning. This discussion enabled us to discuss this complex issue both from the viewpoint of those of us who are designing and conducting professional workshops as well by those of us who are trying to assess, ascertain, and prove the connection. This conversation provided both an opportunity to share effective evaluation practices as well as to delve into deep issues of values vis-a-vis education and its purpose.
