7 Habits That Transform Professional Development
Presented by Megan Kirts and Chandler Jordan
Are you thinking about offering an economics book club for your educator audience? Do you want to inspire adult learners with transformative professional development? Learn how to do BOTH in a special NAEE book club focused on The PD Book: 7 Habits That Transform Professional Development. The 30 minute session on March 22nd will introduce attendees to the book and provide an opportunity to hear from co-author Lori Cohen.
The follow up virtual book discussion session on MAY 17th will provide NAEE members with the tools to conduct professional development sessions structured around the book and will inspire members to create better PD for their audience.
