Planning teacher learning

Planning teacher learning is one of the professional practices in the British Council's teacher educator framework. In planning effective teacher education courses and sessions (such as workshops, lectures and seminars) teacher educators should be familiar with how to use needs analysis and evaluations of previous sessions to inform planning decisions. They should also be able to define teacher learning objectives that are clear, achievable, and appropriate to the teachers’ profile and identify and select appropriate learning channels (F2F, virtual, hybrid), resources and activities to support these objectives. This professional practice includes developing the ability to organise courses and sessions in a coherent and logical order and identifying how and when teachers’ skills and knowledge should be assessed.
