Planning Teacher Professional Development
Title: Planning Teacher Professional Development
Date: Monday 27 April 2015
Time: 14.00 – 15.00 UK time
This webinar is aimed at anyone interested in planning a programme of continuing professional development, such as teachers, Directors of Studies or Exams Officers.
In this webinar we will give an overview of the Cambridge English Teaching Framework and the research behind it. We’ll then demonstrate our new online Teacher Development Tracker - a self-assessment tool for teachers which can be used to develop profiles and identify skills gaps. We’ll look at ways of preparing a professional development plan for teachers and trainees and introduce a range of practical ideas and resources for supporting professional development.
