It was terrific to see so many of you at our recent PLN event on 10 March 2017. Please find in this post many of the presentations and resources that were shared during the day.

MyPL is your new professional development and accreditation platform. It will provide a single location for managing and keeping track of all professional learning, accreditation and performance activities, including:
February update for principals and leadership teams
As of 13 February 2017, there are still a few updates in the works for the new platform. The MyPL team are working with developers to streamline new processes as quickly as they can. Please be patient while these updates take place.
Manually enrolling staff (ie selecting staff from your school or network) is currently not available for many users. Until this is updated, this means all staff must enrol in sessions themselves.
During this transition period, if you have difficulty authoring a course or scheduling a session on MyPL before an event date, the MyPL team may assist you to enrol participants if you can provide them with an accurate enrolment list (include names, DoE emails and school locations). This is only during the upgrade phase.
What can I do NOW to learn more about the new MyPL?
