Connected Professional Learning for Teachers

Four school systems are redesigning professional learning for the age of high academic standards

ERS studied school systems and states with improving student outcomes to learn best practices for teacher professional learning. We observed that these organizations "connected" professional learning to what teachers do every day, and connected every part of the system into one coherent vision. We found that they invested in rigorous, comprehensive curricula and assessments; content-focused, expert-led collaboration; and frequent, growth-oriented feedback.

We call this approach "connected professional learning." On the "Connected Professional Learning" page you can read  more about how connected professional learning lights the learning engine for teachers and students; download resources for school systems, and take a diagnostic assessment. Here on this page, we dive deep into the stories of how school systems practice these principles.
