Leading Professional Learning: Building Capacity for Sustained Effective Practice 

Leading Professional Learning was developed by Katherine Stiles, Susan Mundry, and Carol Bershad. It can be played in-person as a cooperative board-game or through a virtual, synchronous format. 

"This game is a great simulation and presents teacher profiles that leaders and instructional support can relate to. The theory of action resources shared provides 3 clear phases that can be used when planning for professional development."

"Personally and professionally life changing."

"It is one of the best PL sessions that I have ever attended. Very relevant to education for teachers, staff, and leaders. "
