Professional Development: Attendees Perceptions from Previous PD Opportunities/Preferences for Follow-up Activities

posted on 2019-09-17, 17:54 authored by Jeff KnoxJeff Knox, David Krupke
The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions attendees have of Professional Development meetings. In addition, attendees were asked to state their preferences for PD follow-up. Data were analyzed in terms of attendee assignment, and career stage (based on Huberman, 1989).

Results indicated that both assignment and career stage were not significantly related to perception. Follow-up preferences were varied, indicating individual needs.

This information is important for PD providers, who must be kept accountable to attendees for relevant information.
