“Could we in the United States create school cultures in which instructing colleagues on how they might improve performance is not a rare and emotion-laden event, but rather an accepted and valued mechanism in the development of desirable professional practice?”
In his latest editorial, Tom Daccord recounts his experience in Singapore as an Outstanding Educator in Residence and then applies those observations and lessons-learned to the US education system. He challenges us to think about whether we could build a culture of constructive communication into our PD models.
Tom Daccord will be hosting a FREE, live webinar on October 21st – Connected Administrators: Fostering Learning That Leads to Opportunities. He will also be presenting at both the Boston and San Diego iPad Summits.
