Take blended learning to the next level by building an effective professional learning community!

Technology is permeating classrooms and offering teachers and students opportunities to reimagine teaching and learning. Many schools and districts are shifting from traditional teacher-led instruction to blended learning with the goal of placing students at the center of learning. It’s time to power up your approach to professional learning to ensure teachers feel inspired and supported as they make this shift and embrace technology. This book provides an effective and actionable framework for school leaders looking to implement a long-term professional learning plan that extends professional development beyond a handful of days each year to create “coaching culture” that supports teachers as they move toward blended learning.

Blended Learning expert Catlin Tucker provides a clear path for professional learning that is embedded in the school’s culture, blending targeted training (the “spark”), 1:1 coaching, and professional learning communities. This comprehensive approach to professional learning ensures that teachers in a blended environment work continually to improve learning outcomes for students, stay up-to-date on current technology, and learn with their colleagues. This text is full of concrete resources and strategies for leaders and blended learning coaches. It includes:

  • Coaching protocols
  • Templates for feedback
  • Lesson planning resources for designing blended lessons
  • Rubrics for evaluation
  • Stories and tips from blended learning coaches
  • Vignettes from teachers who have successfully shifted to a blended learning model
  • Reflection questions for leading book studies

This book provides the tools and tips you’ll need to support teachers as they move toward blended learning. From articulating the why behind a shift to blended learning, to creating and implementing an actionable roadmap for building a professional learning infrastructure, this must-have resource will take your PD plans to the next level!
