Tell the truth

Tell the truth

  • I’m bored. I’ve lost interest in my job.

  • I get a lot of job satisfaction.

  • I’m a qualified, experienced teacher.

  • Most of these workshops and seminars are a waste of time.

  • I want to learn something new.

  • I haven’t got time for teacher development.

  • I’d like to be better but I don’t know how.

Why develop

Why develop?

  • Initial training is only a starter pack

  • Teachers and students are at the heart of the institution

  • Changes in education affect teachers and students most directly because thay are the ones who have to change

  • Development is about improving learning

  • We are trying to instill a culture of learning

Steve Darn Celal Bayar University 30.10.2010


Teacher learning

Teacher learning

  • A lot of what we know is unconscious

  • Teaching is a long evolutionary process

  • Ts tend to be isolated and competitive

  • Ts tend to conform to present practices in their schools

  • Teaching is an emotionally engaging and taxing occupation

  • Ts seem to enjoy and benefit from learning from each other

What s wrong with inset

What’s wrong with INSET?

  • ‘’Over the past 20 years, the teaching profession has witnessed a multitude of approaches to teacher development, but few have yielded the expected results and even fewer have managed to survive the initial enthusiasm for the innovation. “The greatest problem faced by schools is not resistance to innovation, but the incoherence resulting from the uncritical acceptance of too many different innovations.“(Fullari 1991)

Steve Darn Celal Bayar University 30.10.2010


Obstacles

Obstacles

  • Ts lives are complicated enough without change.

  • Inside out vs outside in. Experienced Ts know what they need and want. Institutional vs personal goals.

  • Reluctance to change. In the face of change, people revert to their original behaviour.

  • Influences on change are various – school leadership, T’s lives, contexts in and out of school, pay scales ........

Journals diaries and blogs

Journals, diaries and blogs

  • ‘’I talked to a grey and experienced colleague about my demonstration lesson and how it had gone wrong. Served me right, he said. No class could cope with ideally planned lessons more often than once every couple of weeks. The degree of concentration necessary for such ideal lessons is beyond the kids, in fact beyond anybody.’’

The adult learner

The adult learner

  • Voluntary participation - Adults will learn better in situations where they themselves choose to get involved.

  • Mutual respect - For adults to progress in their learning, they need to feel they are valued and respected

  • Collaboration - Adults learn best in situations where they can share and learn from other adults.

  • Action and reflectionProfessional development opportunities have to give the chance to reflect on and modify actions

Steve Darn Celal Bayar University 30.10.2010


The adult learner 2

The adult learner 2

  • Organizational setting - Professional development programs need the support of the institution

  • Choice and change - Adults learn best when given the chance to make their own choices

  • Motivation - Adults engage in learning when they see that a specific learning opportunity can help them cope better with their everyday lives.

  • Self-direction - When teachers are given the chance to participate in the planning and implementation of programs, the results can be impressive.
