Professional Learning Communities (PLC)—How to Reach Transformative Change
Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) provide systems of growth that can advance your teams and students to the next level. Typical CTE collaboration often revolves around content, limiting CTE teacher dialogue to specific career field discussions. With highly developed PLCs, teachers connect across program areas and the discussions shift to focus on instruction—not just content. PLCs provide a framework to make significant improvements in the quality of instruction. Teachers begin to speak a common language on strategies and lessons and engage in authentic field-testing and feedback. This course will discuss the organization of PLCs and strategies for participating in and benefiting from being a part of them.
