"All professionals need to [collaborate] otherwise they are not [in] professions because people don't share their expertise." In a profession that has traditionally been siloed, where walls and doors create natural barriers, how might educators better leverage collaboration as they grow in their practice? As part of an 8-part "Thought Leader" podcast series, join our conversation with Dr. Andy Hargreaves (Emeritus Profession at Boston College Lynch School of Education, Visiting Professor at University of Ottawa, and President/Co-Founder, ARC Education) as we delve deeper into the transformational power of collaborative professionalism. For those who may want to extend the learning evoked by the podcast, the following facilitation guide (https://bit.ly/2v6lRiE) has been developed to help with next steps in deepening the shared learning. This series is brought to you in collaboration with Learning Forward, the only professional association devoted exclusively to establishing and sustaining highly effective professional development for educators.
