Relevant, Job-Embedded Professional Learning

Effective school leaders embed professional learning needs into the school schedule and each teacher’s day so that learning is part of day-to-day practice, also known as “job-embedded learning.” When school leaders place a priority on job-embedded learning, they foster conditions necessary for teachers to transfer new skills into practice within a strong system of support. By embedding professional learning needs into the school schedule, school leaders provide relevant and timely learning opportunities for teachers. Job-embedded learning provides teachers with greater access to more learning opportunities, which results in development of higher levels of self-efficacy to positively impact student learning.
