Event description

Description

Role and Function of the Pro-D Rep

This workshop is geared specifically to the Rookie Pro-D Rep and 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 updated 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Pro-D Funds will only be released to your school once you have attended a Pro-D training session. Space is limited so we can only accommodate one Pro-D rep from each school.
