Abstract

Context:

  • The State of Georgia adopted a new teacher evaluation system, the Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES)
  • Teachers are expected to have an individualized professional development plan
  • Depending on the school district, some may limit teacher pay for advanced degrees, limiting professional development opportunities for teachers

Project Goals:

  • To develop professional learning for Georgia teachers (and eventually leaders) to provide them with an opportunity to be successful on the new evaluation system
  • To develop content in a low cost, flexible format that produces observable results
  • To create competency-based modules to allow an efficient, targeted form of learning
