From our ʻAha Kūkā: A Gathering Around Building Our Capacity, April 2nd and 3rd, 2019, came many, many questions.
How do we continue to build our capacity in the weeks, months and years ahead?
How do we prevent the duplication of [PD] efforts in our schools?
Given so many PD providers, how do school leaders and educators make PD choices that align with their school's mission and vision?
How do we vet PD so that we know which is authentically student centered, and which is being delivered for other motives?
How might PD organizations and facilitators provide courses, for credit, to teacher candidates and new teachers?
What do our students feel our teachers need terms of professional development? What does student voice tell us about where we go with PD in Hawaiʻi.
How do are PD providers keep ʻaina and culture front and center, while preparing our students the world beyond our islands?
How do we define what is professional development is? Might the two best PD experiences be: 1. joining a cohort and 2. finding a mentor?
How does any PD provider or facilitator gain exposure and credibility with private funders and schools?
How do we keep most of all of our professional development funds in Hawaiʻi?
What is professional developmentʻs "value add" to the transformation that is required in our education?
