Abstracts of Dermot’s Sessions:

Teacher development

To be effective members of a department or school, and in order to gain job satisfaction, teachers need to be able to manage change and develop their professional knowledge and skills. The need to change may come from outside with the introduction of a new curriculum, or a new textbook, the availability of new technology, moving to a new place of work, or from different expectations of language learning. The desire to develop may come from within, from wanting to get better at the job and be able to vary ways of working. Some teachers resist change, but the need to develop will be there all the same. The school or faculty which values its teachers will support them in their development, and the professional teacher will be able to work with others, or autonomously, to evaluate and reflect on their work. We will look at the ways other teachers have managed their professional development and identify practical ways for you to meet the needs you identify and to implement the process of development in your context of work.

Teacher appraisal

Staff appraisal is a general technique for any institution to evaluate the way that its staff contribute to the work of the organisation and to make sure that they are given the support and training necessary to enable them to work effectively and get satisfaction from their job. We will look at how to organise appraisal so that it works to the benefit of staff and institution, and how and if you could use this.

Action research

In many places teachers now carry out research adapted to their needs and concerns so that they can take more control over how they organise and implement teaching and learning in their classrooms. Appropriate and skilled use of these techniques empowers teachers and gives them a greater confidence in managing change in their context. They learn how to avoid negative influences and find effective, useful ways to encourage learning. Doing this requires more responsibility from learners and helps them in turn. We will look at methods, examples and ways that you could implement these ideas to meet needs where you work.
