CIM has introduced a new approach to its research-focused professional development offer – professional development by request.

We will continue to develop and offer professional development courses that build practitioners’ capacity to use teacher-directed observation, lesson study and action research to support their professional growth goals.  We will continue to deliver these both face-to-face at our campus locations, as well as virtually where appropriate.  But we will not develop a schedule for their delivery, instead we will deliver (and devleop) our courses by request.

To request a course:

  • select a course from the 2017-2018 course offerings, or identify a research-related topic you want to learn more about
  • recruit six (6) or more participants from your campus, or from across the campuses
  • contact Latfa Hassanali to schedule the course to meet the availability of the participants and the course leader.
