ccording to Buckminster Fuller, creator of the “Knowledge Doubling Curve”; until 1900 human knowledge doubled approximately every century, by the end of World War II knowledge was doubling every 25 years, and today, on average, human knowledge is doubling every 13 months.

 What does this have to do with professional development? Expectations for student outcomes and teacher inputs are at an all-time high.  We know that effective professional learning occurs when teachers regularly collaborate to improve their practice and implement strategies that meet student’s needs and bolster their achievement.

The Professional Learning feature of ENGAGE will assist you on this journey. We fully understand the challenges you face, and moving forward, our aim is to:

  • Listen – We want to hear your needs; what’s working, and how we can support you.
  • Learn – We will be researching the latest trends in contemporary educational professional learning.  Will “Uncommon PD”, “Learning Bootcamps”, or “/Flipped Learning” work for us?
  • Lend a Hand – We want to support you in your quest to be lifelong learners.

“True education does not ignore the value of scientific knowledge or literary acquirements; but above information it values power; above power, goodness; above intellectual acquirements, character” (Ellen G. White, Education, p.225).
