Align 8 Main Dimensions of Professional Development

There are roughly eight dimensions of professional development that need to align and reinforce each other. They are represented by the large arrows in the diagram to the right. Most of the PD things that we do fall into these categories. The narrow two-way arrows represent the ways in which the dimensions can reinforce and strengthen each other. Some of these reinforcements are more important than others. The visual is meant to provide a big picture of the many things that we do around PD and the complex connections between them. It is a way to consider how to (a) better align what we do with time and money in a setting, and (b) consider connections and strategies that we didn't see before.
