EDU 532 Professional Learning Communities
This course affords participants an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding about the effective use of professional learning communities. This course utilizes the Learning by Doing handbook for professional learning communities to help PLC leaders and participants learn how to improve PLC’s and increase their impact on student achievement. The process of creating common formative and common summative assessments will be explored as well as using the data from those assessments to improve learning. The final project for this course requires students to complete a PLC Action Plan that incorporates the concepts learned in the class to a practical plan of action for achieving an effective PLC.
