About the talk

Teacher agency is the capacity to act purposefully to direct your own professional growth, as defined by Biesta et al. This talk describes a peer observation project carried out by two colleagues, done over a year, experimenting with three different types of observation. This process empowered both teachers and the observations revealed different dimensions of agency.
