Eliciting Emotions in Professional Development

When planning professional development, I often look for videos to either help convey a point or possibly to introduce a topic. Often they are placed strategically within a workshop to evoke some type of emotion. So I am always on the lookout for good videos to serve this purpose.

When I came across this video of a dad helping his little girl hula hoop, I knew I had to share it. When I want to watch a video more than once and I notice an emotional reaction in myself, then I know a video is one that I want to save in case it fits in with any upcoming content that I am designing for.

This video gives me all the feels, and as we wind down the month of May and our focus on the habit of celebrate and appreciate, I just wanted to share it with you all in hopes that it also puts a smile on your face. And maybe you can share it in an upcoming PD or meeting you hold. If you are not already using Elena Aguilar’s Checklist for Facilitating PD, I strongly suggest you check it out.
