My CPD resolution: Facilitating a teacher activity group: challenges and rewards - Nelson Arditto
In this webinar, we look at some questions (and possible answers) hovering over anyone thinking about facilitating a Teacher Activity Group (TAG) such as: How do you create a feeling of egalitarianism among all members, including the facilitator? How do you decide what to focus on? How do you manage meetings with teachers with different levels of experience? What activities do you use in the meetings? How do you create follow-up for following meetings? When and how do you bring the TAG to a successful closure?
Our top CPD resolution for 2019: Peer reflection - Cristiana Osan and Teo Naiba
While reflection is generally considered a personal process, it can be highly effective when done with the help of a peer. The presentation will explore the practical aspects of reflection in terms of team teaching, peer feedback and support. The presentation itself shows how the two facilitators have collaborated both face-to-face and online and helped each other to develop their reflective skills. The two facilitators are committed to continuing their professional development by introducing more diversity in the reflective tools they use together.
