Traditional and Digital Professional Learning Resources for Teacher Development in Haiti: CIES Conference Presentation

This past week, four colleagues and I presented an overview of the work we have been doing with principals and teachers in Haiti. The presentation was completed at the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) annual conference. Our presentation included an examination of how traditional professional development (i.e. face-to-face) can be supplemented and complemented by on-line opportunities.

The presentation team included: Jhonel Morvan (Ontario Ministry of Education), Bertrhude Albert (University of Florida & Projects for Haiti), Priscilla Zelaya (Alachua County School District & Projects for Haiti), and Thelus Wilson (ISTEAH, Haiti).

It is exciting to partner with these individuals and others in Haiti as we nurture the capacity of educators in Haiti to be exceptional leaders.
