PDS Frames of Reference

  • The Holmes Group Principles

    • Philosophical in nature

    • Set the stage

  • The NCATE PDS Standards

    • Describe the work

    • Useful planning tool

  • A Conceptual Framework for Creating

    a PDS


Need to address degree of implementation l.jpg

Need to address degree of implementation:

  • University A:

    • Ready, Ready, Ready

  • University B:

    • Fire, Fire, Fire

  • Michael Fullan:

    • Ready, Aim, Fire!


The conceptual framework for measuring the quality of a pds l.jpg

The Conceptual Framework for measuring the quality of a PDS:

5 Arenas with 6 Dynamics within each Arena.

Research base for arenas l.jpg

Research Base for Arenas

Two studies exploring the Arenas

are in process:

  • One is employing the data set from the National Research Study

  • One is employing constituent members of PDSs with the PDS itself being the level of analysis


Each arena requires a learning community l.jpg

Six Dynamics of a Professional Learning Community

  • Shared Vision

  • Reflective Dialogue

  • Inquiry

  • Parity

  • Collaboration

  • Leadership


The research base for dynamics l.jpg

The Research Base for Dynamics

  • Explored in a national study with response from 35 distinct universities representing a national sample

  • Dynamics rating and degree of implementation were significantly related,

    r = +.523, p<.01 (R2 = .27).

  • This study will be continued

At the Overall Conceptual Framework Level:

  • The conceptual framework will be studied as it applies at the level of a PDS

  • This is structured as a year-long study

  • Growth of the PDS will be measured by the PDS Dashboard and by change in behavior/belief

  • Plans are in the development stage to apply this approach at other PDS sites that represent relationships between different higher education institutions


Have you used the ncate standards l.jpg

Have you used the NCATE Standards?


This tool has worked for us will it help in other places l.jpg

This tool has worked for us. Will it help in other places?

How can this help move your PDS work forward?

Where should we go from here?


How has this framework helped us in our pds work l.jpg

Strategically:

5 Arenas, and 6 Dynamics permeate planning

The Framework identifies our desired culture.

Allows everyone to see their contribution to the “big picture.”

Establishes expectations for individuals and partners.

New partners see the potential of participation.

Operationally:

Planning during the early years typically focuses on one or two arenas of work

Growth is monitored

Gaps/incongruities are rapidly identified so that they can be addressed in a timely fashion

The conversation begets a stronger learning community

Everyone knows the areas needed for growth.

How has this framework helped us in our PDS work?
