     What could Practitioner-Led Professional Development look like?

    A school uses the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system to manage behavioral expectations of students.  When new teachers come to the school, they are given a two-day training on using PBIS instructional strategies in the classroom.  The PD is taught by former teachers who successfully implemented PBIS in their classrooms and draws upon their experiences to shape instruction of the training.
