PLC-F Agenda: Apr. 19, 2012

How will we utilize the PLC feedback survey for collecting data in 2011-12?  Continue to design and development the 2011-12 PLC survey.

  1. REVIEW: Editing/revising in chunks (completed on 04/12/12)
  2. Designing prompts for SMART Goal – PBL concentrated work
    1. Brainstorm possible prompts in comments for this post.
    2. Collaboratively build common assessment items for PBL and SMART Goal.

Resources:

  1. 2011-12 PLC Assessment DRAFT
  2. 2o10-11 PLC survey prompts
  3. 2010-11 PLC survey data

    PBL prompts

    Because I am working in a PLT/PLC, I have more knowledge and skills for designing and using PBL for student learning.

    As a result of practicing PBL in PLC, I have grown in my ability to facilitate PBL.

  2. Danelle Dietrich says:

    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, I have a better understanding of PBL.
    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, my ability to design more PBL-esque lessons has improved.
    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, I have carried out, or will carry out, some form of PBL this year, with my 11-14 year-olds.
    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, I have plans to implement specific PBL(s), with my 11-14 year-olds, in the fall of 2012.

  3. I am equipped to implement PBL in my courses along with my team
    I can explain PBL to a new faculty member
    Because of my work in a PLC/PLT, I am motivated to implement PBL in my courses next year.

  4. leslieannl says:

    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, I have a better understanding of the seven essentials of PBL.

  5. boadams1 says:

    a. From the lesson study on PBL, I learned a lot about project-based learning by watching videos that explained or demonstrated PBL.
    b. From the lesson study on PBL, I learned a lot about project-based learning by reading/discussing the article 7 Essentials of Project-Based Learning.
    c. From the lesson study on PBL, I learned a lot about project-based learning by participating in the brainstorming (e.g., Lino-It) and brainwriting activities about PBL.

  6. tsadtler says:

    As a result of my work in a PLC/PLT, I am comfortable with the varying degrees of PBL (so-called “lowercase pbl” versus “uppercase PBL.”
    As a result of my work in a PLC/PLT, I can cite examples of PBL either on Westminster campus or in other schools.
    As a result of my work in a PLC/PLT, I am committed to implementing PBL during the 2012-2013 academic year.

  7. Sam says:

    As I have learned about PBL in my PLC this year, I now believe that PBL is a valuable and useful method of learning for my students.

  8. jplgough says:

    As a result of working in a PLC/PLT, my team has plans to implement specific PBL(s), with our 11-14 year-olds, between now and December of 2012.

    Our SMART goal is about both Project-based Learning and Balanced Assessment. Do we feel that we have covered balanced assessment in the planned assessment questions?

  9. Lauren Davis says:

    As a result of working in a PLT/PLC:

    I can better understand the benefits of PBL
    I can better design PBL
    I can better implement PBL

    (whatever the prompt, I think we need a multi-tiered section…)

  10. professeurb2 says:

    I think that this survey is becoming a little too long and we are trying to use it for too many different purposes at this point (PR/statistics, formative assessment, feedback on PLCs, PBL, etc.). I am in favor of keeping it as short as possible. However, given that our PLC SMART goal this year is PBL, I do feel like this needs to be at the “heart” of our survey. I wonder if we want to start the survey with PBL prompts so that we get more thorough answers while people are “fresh.” I feel like they are going to peter out by the end of the survey because of the length. As for prompst, I like both Mecia’s and Danelle’s suggestions.

    — Increased knowledge
    — Specifics of how knowledge increased
    — Feel equipped
    — Level of buy-in/commitment?
