WDPM Step 3, Selecting Content

Wisconsin Personnel Development Model (WPDM)

Selecting Content is directly related to data analysis and goal setting.

  • Does the professional development content match the needs identified through data collection and analysis?
  • Does the content have a scientific research base?
  • Does the planned staff development align with the district focus? What information needs to be clarified?
  • Were teachers involved in determining the learning activities?
  • How will we know the degree to which the professional development resulted in increased student achievement?
