The purpose and focus of Sticky Standards: Professional Learning that Sticks, is PROFESSIONAL LEARNING. These podcasts focus on the Professional Learning standards that have been adopted by Learning Forward.
As learners, listeners will gain a deeper understanding of the Professional Learning Standards and make connections with any initiative/upcoming change within their team, building, district, and/or state.
BELIEFS:

  • Learning starts with sticky fingers and sand in our socks.
  • People learn in a community of practice.
  • Change is a process, not an event.
  • Change happens the moment we ask the right question.
  • At our school, it is EVERYONE’s job to learn!
  • Learning = Change. Change = Learning.
  • Change happens one conversation at a time.
  • Professional Learning is the SOLUTION!

Join us as we explore the Professional Learning standards that make learning STICK!
