Personalised teacher development – is it achievable?

A workshop for managers and teachers.

Is there such a thing as truly teacher-centred professional development? If so, how can language teaching organisations benefit from it?  What might it look like? How can managers work to create the space for teachers to really define and proactively work on their own development?  How can teachers best make use of that space?

This day long pre-conference event, bringing together LAMSIG (leadership and management) and TDSIG (teacher development), will look at these questions and others.  Through a mixture of short TED style talks, plenary discussion, and open space interactions, we plan to provide ideas and options for both managers and teachers as well as giving those present the opportunity to share ideas and imagine possible ways of changing the “one size fits all Friday afternoon staff development workshop” paradigm. Thereby fostering an approach which is not only truly teacher-centred, but also one which serves the needs of the organisation and its managers.
