District and campus administrators have no shortage of options when considering resources to use as professional learning for their teaching faculty. However, determining the "right" topic and resources at the "right" time that engages adults and impacts learners is not an easy process. In this session, we'll explore some criteria for selecting appropriate resources, share some thinking about how to generate an engaging conversation around those resources, and most importantly, develop strategies for monitoring and supporting the implementation of the target skill/ strategy.
