In this session Fiona Dunlop explores ways of identifying what motivates the teachers you manage and how to encourage them to take ownership of their CPD in a way that will benefit not only the teacher but the organisation too. The session covers areas such as developmental observation techniques and focussed action research for teachers. Fiona also makes reference to the British Council CPD Framework and how this can be used to guide both teacher and academic manager.
