Standards for Professional Learning

Learning Forward presents Standards for Professional Learning to describe the conditions, content, and processes for professional learning that leads to high-quality leading, teaching, and learning for students and educators. Standards lead to environments in which educators and students have equitable access to powerful learning.

The 11 Standards work within a framework to outline a system for professional learning. To create high-quality professional learning that results in improved educator practices and improved student results, educators apply the 11 standards in concert.
