Building learning communities requires an appreciation of the wants of the individual and the needs of the institution, which is why personalized learning is valuable. When schools promote learning they find valuable for organizational growth and educators immerse in their own unique development, engagement grows.
Traditional professional development offers strategies and solutions, but seldom does it stimulate a deeper understanding of why problems exist and how to make sustainable changes. How to address resistance, systemic influences, external processes, and other significant elements of a learning environment- need to be part of any learning for an educator.
