LPS Educators, Share Your Expertise - Design a Professional Learning Opportunity!As educators in the Lexington Public Schools, we work with colleagues who are passionate about teaching, have tremendous expertise in their respective fields, and have dedicated their professional lives to lifelong learning. Both individually and collectively, we have such extraordinary talent among our teaching staff!
With this in mind, the district-wide LPS Professional Learning Committee seeks proposals throughout the year from faculty members who are interested in teaching a multi-session workshop or a graduate-level course in our After-School Professional Learning Course Offerings program. Our goal is to offer courses “that enhance a teacher’s repertoire of assessment strategies, responsive instructional skills, and content knowledge.” The courses are generally about 15 hours in duration (over 5 or 6 sessions), and offer 1 in-house credit or external graduate credit to participants upon their successful completion of course requirements.
Please consider designing a course to offer your colleagues, or perhaps partnering with a colleague to co-teach a course. Courses should be directly and immediately applicable to improving both instructional practice and student learning. Please refer to the course proposal details in the left-hand menu for more information about the application and approval process, and your PL Committee building representative can provide you with additional information.
We look forward to continuing in our mission of providing high-quality professional learning for LPS staff, and designing opportunities for educators to engage in collaborative inquiry and educational leadership throughout the district.Contact Caitlin Ahern at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, or would like to discuss ideas and opportunities for professional learning courses.
