The purpose and focus of this website, Sticky Standards: Professional Learning that Sticks, is PROFESSIONAL LEARNING.  It includes podcasts and great resources that focus on the Standards of Professional Learning that have been adopted by Learning Forward.

As learners, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Professional Learning Standards and make connections with any initiative/upcoming change within their team, building, district, and/or state. It will also make connections between the PL Standards and systemic change.


  • Learning starts with sticky fingers and sand in our socks.
  • People learn in a community of practice.
  • Change is a process, not an event.
  • Change happens the moment we ask the right question.
  • At our school, it is EVERYONE’s job to learn!
  • Learning = Change.  Change = Learning.
  • Change happens one conversation at a time.
  • Professional Learning is the SOLUTION!
  • For learning to happen, we must EXPERIENCE it!


Join us as we explore the Standards of Professional Learning that make learning STICK!
