The Learning Professional’s Debut Issue: Professional Learning for STEM

The Learning Professional Is Here
•February, 2016•
We have great news to share. Learning Forward’s journal, JSD, has changed its name to The Learning Professional. The bimonthly magazine is still the same well-respected journal of professional learning, but with an updated look and member focus.

We’re excited to help you explore the February issue. Previously, each issue was devoted to one theme. In The Learning Professional, we still take a deep dive into one topic (within our section “Focus”), and this time it’s professional learning in STEM. At Learning Forward, we believe that remarkable professional learning begins with ambitious goals for students, and such rigor is often part of STEM instruction.

Here you’ll read about:

* Teachers teaming with scientists to enrich STEM content and instruction;
* How underwater robotics brought STEM to life for teachers in Guam; and
* New Mexico teachers collaborating to explore student learning in math.

In The Learning Professional, we have a wider range of feature-length articles in our new “Ideas” section, as well as a greater focus on telling members’ stories in our new “Voices” section. All that, plus the same great research reviews and practitioner tools you’ve come to expect in Learning Forward’s journal.

A few highlights we thought you, with your perspective as an independent or external provider, might enjoy:

* Professional learning in Canada: Learning Forward releases a landmark study and call to action, making the case for a culture of collaborative professionalism for educators. (This article is available upon joining Learning Forward)
* Training the trainers: Learning to be a principal supervisor

We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new magazine. You can read it online now at
