Professional learning that's
PERSONALIZED, PURPOSEFUL, PARADIGM-SHIFTING
"Personalized professional learning empowers teachers to take an active role in their professional learning, and honors both their voice and choice. This approach means an end to 'sit and get'; teachers’ needs inform the learning approach, content, and product. Our teachers are worthy of this change, and our students deserve the benefits. Effective professional learning must be focused, sustained, job-embedded, and personalized. Otherwise, it is simply a hope … not a practice."

Allison Rodman is an educational consultant who provides professional learning services to districts, schools, and educational nonprofit organizations.
Allison is deeply committed to connecting educators together and sharing resources to personalize the learning process for all (both students and the educators who support them - at every level of the system).
The goal of her work is to support the whole child and whole educator to view learning as an ongoing experience and not an endpoint. This process includes learner voice, co-creation, social construction, and self-discovery.
When working with districts and schools, Allison challenges them to examine all aspects of their learning organization and focus on the connections among culture, collaboration, and communication as levers for growth.
Allison encourages a comprehensive, strategic, and personalized approach to professional learning rather than one-time, "sit and get" PD sessions. To design and sustain this type of purposeful and intentional paradigm shift, her services include a wide range of offerings to meet educators' needs, such as:
Leadership Coaching and Thought Partnerships
Professional Learning Design
Professional Learning Facilitation
Valuation and Impact Measurement
