Update on Professional Development
The pace has definitely picked up in the area of professional development now that we have Astrid Liden on board! So its time for a brief update and save the date alert.
We had sent out an email a short while ago that reported the selection of Regional Professional Development Coordinators (see copied list below), and they are beginning their local efforts to develop either Spring Regional Events or other professional development regional activities. I am hoping that you do what you can to support and sustain their efforts and assist them if called upon in this planning. Feel free to share ideas regarding regional and local approaches to professional development with them.
Please note that the ABE Master Calendar is posted online at: http://mnabe.themlc.org/ABEcalendar.html
As we receive information about regional ABE meetings, we will post them to that calendar. If you would like us to note other regional events that you think impact ABE programs in your part of the state, please let us know. A few selected statewide ABE events on the horizon are:
Thank you for your support as we launch into a redesigned professional development arena. Attention and participation in professional development is critically important to our system and ultimately the success of our students.
