Continuing Professional Development is an area of ELT that can sometimes be given less importance and acknowledgment than it deserves by organisations and by ourselves. This may be down in part to time, financial constraints, or, as is often the case for a less experienced teacher, a lack of focussed guidance and support, leading to a feeling of not knowing where to start, feeling overwhelmed by choice, and being unsure about how to realise achievable CPD goals.
This session aims to raise awareness of what CPD is, what is available and relevant to English language teachers in the first few years of their career, and how to integrate CPD opportunities seamlessly into their busy lives. An underlying premise is that in order to develop effectively we must reflect in a meaningful way and recognise our ongoing achievements in order to move forward.
In this workshop, we aim to look at the various ways we can access professional development, how to select what is useful and relevant for us and our students and how to gather evidence through reflective practices to monitor and measure the impact on our students.
We will provide practical, easy-to-implement ideas which can be embraced into the everyday working life of a busy English teacher, including a number of useful hints and reflective tools.
The workshop will also give the participants the opportunity to reflect and set professional SMART developmental goals relevant to their experience, environment and students.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.
