Professional Development Toolkit

The Tool Kit for Quality Professional Development addresses seven major areas related to planning, implementing, and evaluating high quality professional development. This work is based on the Arkansas Rules Governing Professional Development and the National Staff Development Council’s (NSDC) Standards for Staff Development.

Each chapter includes:

  • List of Tools
  • Where Are We Now—Self-Assessment Questions
  • Overview of the topic and explanation of tools
  • Reflection Questions
  • References
  • Tools and Activities

Articles from NSDC publications are the source of many of the tools in each chapter. There are also activities, self-assessments, and discussion protocols provided in the Tools section to help district and school staff learn about and make decisions concerning professional development.
