Professional development happens every year for every teacher, and yet there’s broad agreement among educators that it very often misses the mark. In some places, teachers are turning their districts’ attention to longstanding blind spots in PD, and helping make training more targeted and meaningful. In this virtual event, Education Week reporters and their expert guests will look at some of the most prevalent problems with and oversights in PD, and offer ideas for fixing them.

Thank you to those who joined us for this event, which took place on Oct. 24, 2019. Below, you can watch the reporter wrap-up we streamed at the end of the event.
