NAEP's Professional Development Implementation pROCESS

The implementation stage must be included and supported more explicitly in professional development offerings, as this is the critical stage in which teachers and leaders commit to a new approach.”
— Jeffrey Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer, NAEP

Whole Group Content Delivery

Today’s modern educator requires a unique and engaging approach to professional development. NAEP has designed and implemented an extensive series of customizable professional development modules that provide interactive, real-time discussion among participants and an expert or group of experts. 

These modules are all embedded with a skill-based support methodology to ensure that professional learning in the “PD Room” transfers to student learning in the classroom. 

Job-Embedded Coaching

Job-embedded Professional Development refers to support that is grounded in the day-to-day teaching practice. It is designed to enhance  a teacher’s content-specific instructional practices designed to improve student learning. 

NAEP integrates modeling and coaching support into the workday. We help teachers assess their performance and find solutions for real-time, practice problems. 

Collaborative Planning-Based Discussion and Analysis

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CAN NO LONGER Solely focus on PROVIDING BASIC KNOWLEDGE ABOUT A TEACHING OR LEADERSHIP METHODOLOGY.

NAEP understands the importance of tracking professional growth and the return on investment for training. Our next level professional development-monitoring process ensures that identified participant development efforts are successful by design. All modules and training opportunities attended by participants are outlined in a Professional Development Skill Management System, powered by Tableau © thus utilizing today's latest data visualization technology.

This tool allows school and district leaders to identify the strengths and challenges of specific individuals based on objective, measurable metrics that are communicated at each training opportunity. 

With this skill-based performance-monitoring tool, supervisors have a clear understanding of how to track the continued progression of the participants’ integration of trained competencies.
