WDPM Step 4, Designing Action Plans for Professional Development/Training and Learning Opportunities

Wisconsin Personnel Development Model (WPDM)

Designing Action Plans/Training relates directly to identified student needs, goal setting and selecting content.

  • How does the planned professional development align with the district focus? What information needs to be clarified?
  • Who is the training for and what are the expected results?
  • Is the training presenting new learning or trying to refine existing knowledge and skills and therefore is the time sufficient?
  • Are sufficient resources available to help you implement this stage of the professional development model?
  • Is continued follow-up or technical assistance planned to support initial training events?
