Welcome to Corwin's Professional Learning Planning (PLP) Guide

Improving student achievement and boosting the effectiveness of your PD efforts will take more than a traditional approach. Thanks to John Hattie’s Visible Learning research, we know that educators—people who impact nearly every teacher and student initiative in your school and district—MUST be adept in leveraging these high effect-size practices to create the greatest impact on student achievement. It requires intentional strategy that is supported by three key elements: Culture, Clarity, and Collaboration.

Does your PD program encompass these features? If not, what are your next steps for building a plan like this in your school or district? Our PLP guide will help you identify areas where you can build upon current PD and what types of evidence-based programs can help you fill in the gaps.
