Summer Professional Development: Play! | Edutopia.

article’s introduction:

Many educators, myself included, look forward to time during the summer to improve our craft and learn new practices. I was drawn to teaching in part because of my insatiable desire to learn and summers have often included activities like participating in a two week PD on teaching writing and another week on integrating arts and then a self-directed few weeks of deepening my knowledge of a period in history so that I could create new curriculum. While students definitely benefit when teachers engage in such learning, I want to suggest that you consider a different kind of PD for yourself this summer — I want to encourage you to engage in what I call “Play PD.”
