SCOPE AND SEQUENCE OF PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
Four seasons of professional development opportunities for educators
Community partners and classroom-based teachers learn in a collaborative setting throughout the annual 9-day SEMIS Coalition professional development (PD) series. The PD series is cumulative over a one-year period and multi-faceted, where learning is collaborative. We employ research-based practices in designing PD that is supportive of adult transformational learning. Educators come together with different kinds of experiences, strengths and needs, so the SEMIS Coalition facilitates conversations with individuals and schools to identify shared resources and strengths. Teachers gather with community partners and community leaders for five full days during the school year and four full days during our annual four-day Summer Institute.
