Deepening Our Work

The Professional Learning Collaborative's Think Tank Series

The Professional Learning Think Tank welcomes professional development providers to an open, year-long reflection on professional learning in the greater Pittsburgh region. Think Tank events will help providers, developers, and other professional learning leaders reconnect with their passion, further their practice, and explore innovation, equity, and collaboration—all in order to provide more engaging, relevant, and equitable professional learning to educators in the region.

Four sessions in the coming school year will each tackle a different theme:

  • Motivation: Reconnect to the "why" of your work as a provider of professional learning. (September 20, 12-3pm @ CoLab18)
  • Collaboration: Partner on a professional learning "small bet" with other workgroup members. (Late 2019)
  • Inspiration: Learn from local leaders and see how they're transforming student experience through innovative professional learning. (Early 2020)
  • Creation: Using what you've learned, help build the next iteration of a vision for the future of professional learning in our region. (Spring 2020)
