We now live in an age where technology is disrupting and creating change in almost every part of our personal and professional lives and at a much faster rate than ever before. In order to keep up with this level of change and ensure that we continue to stay relevant as teachers, we need to take responsibility and control of our own professional development and ensure that the skills and knowledge we develop are relevant to our specific career stage and context.
In this session I will share some tools and practices that will enable teachers to determine their own developmental path and ensure that the development they get meets their own personal needs.
