Fred Ende

Making his fourth appearance with Lab Out Loud, we welcome Fred Ende back to the show. As the Assistant Director of Curriculum and Instructional Services for a cooperative educational service in New York, Fred regularly designs, takes part in, observes, evaluates, and delivers professional development.  Most recently, Fred has written a book on professional development entitled Professional Development That Sticks, where he seeks to answer how to approach professional development in a thoughtful way, keep teachers motivated, and make the whole process worthwhile. In addition to being our “PD therapist”, Fred joins Lab Out Loud to share some strategies in creating meaningful learning experiences and suggests how we might retain more of our learning after it’s complete.
