Australia has published an in-depth professional learning toolkit that has resources that many teachers may find helpful (not just those in Australia). This link shares a range of activities that will enhance your professional learning, including sections on:
* The Essential Guide to Professional Learning which has three sections: Evaluation, Leading Culture and Innovation. Each of these areas has a downloadable resource. The one for Evaluation discusses the rationale for evaluation, evaluation design, examples of effective data collection method, effective evaluation of professional learning (with a great visual on how the evaluation should measure the impact on students, the individual practitioner and the organization, as well as how it improves the professional learning program, the professional learning outcomes and the sustained impact), and much more.
* One visual from the Essential Guide to Professional Learning: Leading Culture. The image looks at the many ways adults learn. As with the one on evaluation the resource provides a list of questions one should consider and then explores ways to build holistic learning cultures.
