The High Quality Professional Development disseminated under the Missouri SPDG was developed in a selection of learning packages outlining effective teaching and learning practices that can be used in the classroom. A ‘learning package’ is a focused approach to professional development content. The content is designed to address adult learning principles as well as uphold specific characteristics of high quality professional development. Additionally, the learning packages focus on implementation at the classroom level. While building and district level systems do affect classroom level implementation and materials should be aligned with systems theory, the focus is on implementation at the classroom-level.Click the topics below to learn more about the structure of the Missouri SPDG’s learning packages for professional development.
