    In this workshop, the role of the professional development committee (PDC) in planning, implementing, and evaluating on-going, focused professional learning connected to growth in student learning will be explored. In addition to looking at Missouri's requirements for PDCs, the national standards for professional learning will be discussed. The traditional definition of professional learning will be expanded to enable planners to ensure that it is a comprehensive, ongoing, comprehensive process - not just an event.
