Lipstick on a Pig: PD that Brings Home the Bacon

We saw that eye roll. There’s no hope for professional development, right? It’s kind of like vegetarian bacon: nice try, but just not the same. Presenters are great at using pretty slideshows and hamming it up, but that’s just lipstick on a pig. Are we practicing what we preach? Help us cook up a new recipe to make professional learning an engaging, productive experience. Bring home the bacon to your schools and businesses and change the face of learning.
