The Big Picture Planning Guide: Building Cross-Sector Professional Development Systems In Early Childhood, 3rd Ed

The Big Picture Planning Guide is designed to support a cross-sector, state-level planning process that leads to a single, integrated, professional development system, across all early childhood sectors. The planning guide provides a four-step sequence for considering the key components and contexts of a statewide early childhood professional development system. A definition and conceptual framework for professional development are included, as well as suggestions for facilitation, guiding questions, key considerations, and planning forms. Note: The Big Picture Planning Guide brings together related resources and tools developed by NPDCI into the four-step planning process.
