Supporting ongoing teacher professional development

To support teachers’ ongoing professional development, teacher educators should be able to:

  • explain, in a manner that motivates teachers, the value of professional development
  • increase teachers’ awareness and experience of a range of individual and collaborative professional development activities, including those that make use of technology
  • advise and mentor teachers, including through developmental lesson observations and post-lesson discussions
  • provide regular opportunities for teachers to develop their reflective skills
  • guide teachers in defining their own career goals and identifying professional development action plans to support these goals.
