About this event

This workshop aims to help you:

  • Understand the leadership role of the PD rep in asserting professional rights, facilitating professional learning for teachers as autonomous professionals, and defending public education.
  • Develop an understanding of the history and context of professional development in BC.
  • Develop an understanding of what is and is not professional development.
  • Discuss the culture of professional learning in your school.
  • Identify the available resources for PD reps as both individuals and as a network.

This workshop introduces the skills and knowledge of the PD chairs as a union leader using the PD lens as a strategic tool. Strategies are explored for building member and public support for professional development, advocating for teacher-centered PD, and returning control of PD to teachers.
