Differentiating Professional Learning

Looking at NTIP through the lens of authentic learning means the program will not look the same for every beginning teacher. For example a “new” 1st year permanent hire who has 5 years of daily and long term occasional teaching experience may not have the same NTIP learning goals or needs regarding assessment as a recent faculty graduate entering their first year of long term occasional teaching.

Offering a menu of professional learning through NTIP allows for voice, choice and personalized construction of learning based on authentic learning opportunities directly connected to the real world classroom experiences and learning goals of each individual new teacher.
