Clark - The Professional Passion Project

We know that personalized, passion-based learning works best for students. But what about teachers? In this session, you will learn how to bring passion to your professional learning with the Professional Passion Project. Teachers, coaches, and administrators will explore the power of personalized professional development and plan how it could work in their school.

The session will outline the steps of the project and attendees will be provided with resources to begin a Professional Passion Project of their own. The project begins by brainstorming a topic or question you are passionate about. Then, we will develop a plan of action and explore resources to support collaboration, research, and data collection along the way. To conclude, we will discuss ways to share the final project with a local and global community. Last, but certainly not least, the Professional Passion Project ends with reflection, which typically leads to another question and the cycle begins anew.
