Preparing Teachers for Deeper Learning: Competency-Based Teacher Preparation and Development


"This paper outlines how the role of teachers is changing amid broader shifts to personalized, blended, and deeper learning. In order for the current state of teacher preparation and development to evolve accordingly, the authors recommend professional learning opportunities that echo the type of personalized learning that is recommended for students:

-- Some element of teacher control over time, place, path and/or pace;

-- Balance between teacher-defined goals, goals as defined by administration through teacher evaluation efforts, and school and district educational goals;

-- Job-embedded and meaningful integration into classroom practice; and

-- Competency-based progression."
