Taking responsibility for own professional development is one of the professional practices in the British Council's teacher educator framework. It involves understanding your own professional needs, interests and learning preferences in order to identify areas for development. It involves defining short-, medium- and long-term career goals, understanding the developmental pathways available to reach specific career goals, using technology to facilitate professional development and keeping up to date with developments in relation to the professional practices of teacher educators and of teachers. It also involves reflecting on and evaluating the benefit of continuing professional development and its impact on your practice and teacher learner attainment.
