During this webinar, researchers shared findings from a new review on professional development that improves students’ academic outcomes. The Learning Policy Institute reviewed 35 methodologically rigorous studies and identified seven key common elements of effective professional development, which states and districts can use to design effective professional learning programs. Panelists also discussed promising, evidence-based investments in school leadership, including those contained in the Every Student Succeeds Act state plans that take advantage of the optional Title II, Part A leadership set-aside.
