Transforming Professional Learning (TPL): a multidimensional initiative focused on developing a comprehensive system of professional learning that spans the distance from the statehouse to the classroom.

Learning Forward, in partnership with CCSSO ( Council of Chief State School Officers), received funding for this initiative from three foundations:  Bill and Melinda Gates, Sandler, and MetLife.  The purpose of this initiative is to create a statewide comprehensive professional learning system by aligning state policies and practices to support standards-based professional learning.  Our guests today, Deborah Childs-Bowen, Vicki Duff, and Dale Hair, have been leaders in the initiative from the beginning and are excited to share the history, background, model, design, expansion and accomplishments….so far.

Through collaboration, TPL has the potential to impact our entire nation.  The focus in each state is to build comprehensive professional learning systems aligned with college and career ready standards and systems of educator effectiveness.  The central (heart) of this work is building capacity within a state around a shared focus that will be sustained over time.

Learn more about TPL from these amazing educational leaders!  Listen to our podcast and check out the resources on Learning Forward’s website!!  Yes, it takes all of us (partnerships and collaboration) to transform professional learning that increase educator effectiveness and results for all students!

Happy Learning and Leading!
