Collaborative PD teaches collaboration!
Considering our focus on the value and application of collaboration for various reasons, this is a very important point. Collaborative PD by nature helps build problem-solving teams that provide greater resources or solutions for students by strengthening the teaching community as a whole.
Collaborative PD reinforces:

- Focus on issues relevant to teachers
- Sense of community
- Greater morale & motivation
- Response to adult learner characteristics
