It is an important part of a school's overall faculty commitment to excellence in instruction and learning. Professional development activities may include academic courses, conferences, workshops, seminars, online courses and other such activities offered by universities, schools or educational organizations.
These activities usually focus on multiple levels within the field of education including curriculum design, instructional strategies & classroom management, assessment strategies & systems, technology integration & digital literacy and more. Generally speaking, teachers must continually find ways to stay abreast of changes and new developments in their field in order to bring value to their students' learning experiences.
