ACSI PD Webinar: Christ-Centered Education - For This Cultural Moment

December 8, 2016 1:30 pm–December 8, 2016 2:30 pm MST

The current cultural moment is defined by a new set of moral and religious imperatives circling around sexual and racial identity. With culture rebooting itself every five years, how do we keep up so we can teach and mentor our students effectively? How do we equip them to understand and talk about LGBTQ issues in a Christ-centered manner? What do they learn from us about racial reconciliation, Black Lives Matter, or immigration? 
Let's talk. 

Featured Speaker: Dr. Bill Brown, Senior Fellow of Worldview and Culture, Colson Center

Professional Development for Christian School Educators and Leaders

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.

In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
