Date: 16th January 2013

Theme: In our January webinar, Willy Cardoso looked at several aspects of classroom-based teacher development:

  • Approaches to teacher development that start from inside the classroom
  • How to involve learners in our development
  • Self- and peer-observation tools
  • How to increase the validity (and currency) of our classroom-based knowledge
  • Critical teacher development (or ‘beware of TEFL slogans’)
