6b. Improve professional practice

Engage in continuous learning to deepen professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions in organizational change and leadership, project management, and adult learning to improve professional practice

There are 4 specific experiences that have helped deepen my professional knowledge and skills while inspiring action for organizational change, leadership, and project management.  You can read more about these experiences in performance indicator 6a: Effectively Implement ISTE Standards.

A next step in turning growth into reality and service for the educational community is to learn more about how to approach adult learning to improve the ability to share growth with others…and inspire growth within them.  In my blog post, Best Practices for Adult Learners When Designing Professional Development, I review Knowles Principles of Andragogy and Assumptions of Adult Learners, best practices for PD, and learning process design elements from a variety of resources. 


For long-lasting change and buy-in from the many stakeholders in education, knowing the best educational strategies for adult learners will help to ensure that professional practice for all is innovative, relevant, and applied in the ever-changing landscape of education.
