This webinar focused on how AO states can make the best use of the professional development tools and resources available so that faculty and staff are well-trained and well-supported, including external resources (such as SBCTC and NCTN’s online courses) and internal resources (such as state conferences/trainings). Both presenters emphasized the need for long-term professional development plans in addition to the initial training needed to get programs up and running. State coordinators shared what they are currently doing for professional development and discussed some of their capacity gaps.
Moderator: Ellen Hewett, NCTN
Jon Kerr, SBCTC: Jon discussed some of the strategies that SBCTC has used to provide PD to I-BEST colleges, including the development of a cadre of expert I-BEST instructors to provide PD and technical assistance across the state. He also shared what PD looks like at the state and college level.
Andy Nash, NCTN: Andy discussed how states can best take advantage of the online PD developed by NCTN, including how to connect the online courses with other PD activities for maximum effectiveness.
