"In this text, Sawyer and Stukey connect building knowledge, learning, and planning for adult audiences that goes beyond professional learning communities."
"In Professional Learning Redefined, the authors have created a book where outcomes are clear, and the steps are realistic and useful. I believe this book meets the need for a book on how to design professional learning."
"Professional Learning Redefined is an easy to use handbook that will help ensure that professional development is meaningful, relevant and connects back to student learning."
"Teachers have become complacent and bored with regular “trainings” because they don’t solve problems. This book will put that idea away and support learning to those who are in the classroom and who don’t have a process for solving problems. Collaborative learning will holds teachers and administration accountable for all children learning to the best of their ability and removes the “PD from hell” syndrome."
"This book provides a clear and practical understanding and approach to tackling the task of teacher learning at a time when “initiative fatigue” and “PD overload” are part of our everyday conversations. It allows us to pause for a moment, step back and examine our practices through a new lens. Professional Learning Redefined explains the “why” and the “how” of what we do."
