Develop transformational professional development programs that build and sustain your school community

In The PD Book, bestselling author Elena Aguilar and coauthor Lori Cohen offer seven habits—and a wealth of practical tools—that help you transform professional development. In this book, you'll learn how to inspire adult learners, the importance of having clear purpose, and how to navigate power dynamics in a group. You'll also learn a new way to plan PD that allows you to attend to details and be a responsive facilitator. The dozens of tips and tricks, anecdotes and research, and tools and resources will enable you to create the optimal conditions for learning.

You'll also: craft effective outcomes for your adult students and design an agenda that aligns with adult learning principles; use storytelling as a tool for effective workshops and trainings; and plan backwards from evaluations and outcomes to create powerful and lasting educational experiences.

Ideal for educational leaders and administrators, professional development facilitators, coaches, and positional leaders, The PD Book is an incisive resource offering concrete strategies for educators at all levels.

Poor narration

The narration of this book sounds like AI. The phrasing and expression is just off. I listened to a different professional book written by Elena Aguilar with a different narrator which I enjoyed very much, but this narration is so odd that it’s hard to grasp the content. I think I’ll have to rely on the print version.
