Mapping and Navigating Complexity in Professional Learning: An Initial Engagement session toward Creating a US-based Chapter of the International Professional Development Association
Professional learning has largely been conceived and evaluated as having a linear, causal impact on teachers’ knowledge and practice and students’ learning. Experience in educational settings suggests otherwise. Instead, the complexities already inherent in teacher and student learning have only increased and accelerated given the volatility of pandemic-required adaptations to maintain schooling. During this session, the keynote, panelists, and participatory discussions will explore a more nuanced understanding of the influences among teaching, learning, context, and curriculum that is rooted in complexity theory. The session and subsequent activities among the emerging US-based chapter of IPDA hope to catalyze theorization, research, and programming that better account for complexity toward a more equitable education for all students.
