A Guide to Comprehensive Professional Development Planning

The guide has been developed by a committee of Alberta’s education partners and is intended to support school jurisdictions and schools in the development of comprehensive professional development plans. Professional development is the wide range of activities school jurisdiction staff engage in individually and collectively to improve their practice and enhance student learning. Professional development programs and resources for school staff members are provided by a number of organizations, including school jurisdictions, the Alberta Teachers’ Association, Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortia, Alberta Education and faculties of education at Alberta universities. This resource is focused on professional development for instructional leaders, districts, and schools.
