Why are So Many Teaching PD’s Dull?

I don’t get it!

 

Teaching isn’t dull.

The kids we teach are certainly not dull.

To be an effective teacher you have to be able to engage your class.

So why are so many professional development sessions on teaching so boring?

 

If you told me that you had just come from a boring accountancy PD I wouldn’t blink an eyelid. Accountancy is boring and the people that give these talks are accountants or former accountants (a profession where charm and personality is no prerequisite.

But teaching? Really?

How did these teachers survive in the classroom? Because based on their presentations, they have little clue about how to engage an audience and show little interest in what they are saying.

 

Maybe that’s where failed teachers go – to the PD circuit.
