A variation of Committee of N: Which PD Would you Attend?
Developed by 2Revolutions
Which PD Would You Attend? is a card game that supports educators to step back and reflect on professional learning. K12 professional learning is an $18 billion/year industry in the US. This gamifies the experience and allows players to reflect on different approaches to the processes of professional learning and the mindsets it can engender. Evidence shows that the traditional stand and deliver model is largely ineffective and is not aligned with learning theory. So, let’s model, in our PD, what we want for our children – personalized, agentic, competency-based learning. In this game, educator teams choose a scenario, and then identify content, process, and mindsets, and encounter a challenge when designing a professional development program.
Below are the cards and directions on how to play the physical game. Enjoy!
