Accelerating the Shift to Self-Directed Teacher Learning
Sophistication does not mean more difficult – it means high impact, evidence based and professional. And it’s something the Education Council is seeking. The Council are not seeking scrapbooks of meaningless, randomly complied artefacts by teachers who hope some of it will impress them. The Council is challenging us to be more sophisticated than this.
Fundamental differences exist between inquiry and sophisticated professional inquiry. Differences do not lie in templates teachers use, their frequency of written reflections or how often they gather evidence. It’s more profound than this.
seek an approach to professional inquiry supporting recent shifts in Education Council thinking;
require answers to teachers’ questions such as, “What’s good evidence?”, “How much should I be writing for a reflection?”, “How regularly should I be doing it?”, and “What’s the point of writing everything down when it’s already in my head?”; or
you know professional inquiry has much to offer teachers and students but you sense your teachers and students aren’t experiencing the benefits …
… we can explain why and show you how to remedy the challenges you face. Solutions and ideas presented on the day are being used with success in schools across New Zealand today.
