‘Discussion Groups and Feedback Sessions – PD in Focus 2’ by Vicky Loras

Vicky Loras’s latest blog post is titled ”Discussion Groups and Feedback Sessions – PD in Focus 2”.

Vicky says, “Teaching can be a lonely profession. You teach, come back home, mark, prepare – but you need and would like to get together with colleagues or teacher friends to reflect with. What do you do? A good idea is to set up a discussion group. Get colleagues from work or friends of yours who are teachers and set up a group. I even do this with only one friend of mine.  Of course, a larger group might be better, as you hear and share more opinions and experiences.”

‘On teaching portfolios’ by Tyson Seburn

Tyson Seburn’s latest blog post is titled ”On teaching portfolios”.

Tyson says, ”I’ve always thought portfolios, if relatively all-inclusive, were excellent representations of a body of work. For reflective purposes, they provide ‘a forest’ and ‘trees’ views that can facilitate valuable learning experiences for teachers or students.” Further on, Bailey, Curtis & Nunan suggest, “Thus, a [teaching] portfolio is a collection of artefacts through which teachers present their own professional persona. One’s strengths as a developer of classroom materials, for example, should feature prominently in the portfolio. Other possible selections include students’ test results, student evaluations of teaching, letters of recommendation, samples of students’ work, syllabuses, and so on.”
