Teacher Resource Forum

Posted by School District of Philadelphia on August 21, 2017

Teacher Resource Forum
The Teacher Resource Forum is an annual professional development event where workshop sessions are developed and facilitated by community organizations and school partners and breakout sessions are facilitated by teachers from across the district.  The purpose of the event is to provide teachers with an opportunity to participate in engaging, relevant professional development sessions that will have a direct impact on their instructional and collaborative practices. This program is a way to promote strong relationships among home, school, and community stakeholders by giving them a forum to share resources and create a space for teachers to network while engaging in learning experiences together.

Saturday, October 14th at Lincoln High School

This event is open to 250 participants.  Each session will have 25 seats available with sessions offered multiple times during the event. Sessions facilitated by community groups and organizations provide multiple opportunities for teachers to practice and apply the content to their work with students. Breakout sessions facilitated by classroom teachers provide opportunities for teachers to have thoughtful dialogue about issues that are relevant and important to them.

The event will be advertised on the website for the Office of Teaching and Learning, SchoolNet, the Teacher Information Board, the Principal Information Board, via email, and on social media.  Registration for sessions will occur through SchoolNet. All participants will self-select into two 90-minute workshops and one 45-minute breakout session.  Participants are compensated for their time in sessions and earn Act 48 hours.
