Episode 2.9: She May Have Just Popped Her Collar...Yeah, Mentally, I Did

Last week, in the Project Based Awesome Podcast, Erin and Chris discuss a conference that they attended a couple weekends back and their major takeaways from the conference.

 

This week they discuss another specific thing you can do to get out of a rut and gain new inspiration: watch your colleagues teach. They discuss two specific protocols that they’re district uses for their “learning walks” as they’ve been dubbed. They also dig into the details about the difficulties and major benefits of teachers seeing other teachers work and how it can help both hosts and observers better their craft.
