Podcast: Developing Student-Centered Teachers

Republished with permission from Heather Clayton Staker|10/26/2020

What’s the best way for school leaders to equip teachers with the skills they urgently need to transform their instructional model?

For years many educators have longed for a more personalized, competency-based, student-driven learning model to replace the traditional classroom. This year, remote/hybrid learning has created unprecedented demand for finally taking that call seriously.

In the ideal, educators would have a modular solution for PD–one that lets them order up the specific skills they need, in a simple way, at an affordable price. In this show, Heather Clayton Staker shares her latest research from the Christensen Institute that proposes a way forward for making that vision for PD possible.
