Abstract

One of the most vital components of education is the effectiveness of the classroom teacher; therefore, working towards impacting professional development activities improves learning and achievement. Teachers have the most influence within the education system and by encouraging essential change through professional development activities allows for successful change. The learning obtained from the professional development then becomes a conscious process with their day-to-day teaching. However if teachers and instructors are to inclined to take their new knowledge back to their professional organizations, professional development needs to be created with the adult learner in mind. This presentation was based on the foundation of a review of Stephen Brookfield’s elements of program planning and has been modified to make applicable to information technology teaching professionals. The results of this analysis will help informational technology administrators, department chairs, or teachers create effective professional development programs.
