Autonomous CPD in Difficult Times

This session explored the professional development opportunities available for those who are looking for more autonomous routes to develop as a teacher and who want to shape their own career pathways.

 

Summary

While the language education landscape is undergoing significant changes, teachers' opportunities for professional development are limited by the precarious nature of the profession. The situation was accentuated by the COVID-19 pandemic; yet, along with major challenges came major opportunities for professional advancement. This talk explored the possibilities for autonomous continuous professional development, addressing primarily early career teachers. By examining available CPD opportunities and reflecting on their desired career paths, delegates were provided with a clear framework based on which they will be able to design their own CPD path.
