Preparing Educators for Evaluation and Feedback: Planning for Professional Learning
Educators need more than “evaluation training” to successfully participate in performance evaluation; they need integrated, ongoing professional learning opportunities. In this module, regional centers and states will find information and activities on high quality professional learning approaches that prepare evaluators, educators, and district leaders for implementing evaluation systems. With this module you can:
- Identify professional learning approaches that support evaluators in developing more accurate and reliable evaluation skills
- Use collaborative activities and exercises to help evaluators develop stronger coaching and feedback skills
- Develop a comprehensive plan for preparing all educators for implementing evaluation, including district leaders and educators who are being evaluated.
The module provides eight hours of material, including hands-on activities, which we strongly encourage you to adapt and customize to your state or district’s context and needs. Download PDF copies of each file below, or request copies of the materials in Microsoft Word format by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The GTL Center offers additional support for modifying the materials to suit your context.
