On Thursday afternoon 11 May at 3:30pm we held a free SchoolNet webinar entitled We are ‘A Roadmap for Teacher Professional Development’ Our speaker was Ronelle Klinck, a MIEExpert from Johannesburg and a Teacher Ambassador with Microsoft South Africa. Ronelle has always been passionate about developing teachers and helping them work toward reaching their goals.She gave us some pointers for teacher professional development as noted in the webinar description below.
Ronelle described her webinar topic as follows: “I have always been passionate about supporting teachers in their personal professional development journey. Jessica Piper, in an online article introduces the topic of PD by stating ‘A professional development session can leave a teacher feeling knowledgeable and excited, or feel like the session was a waste of their time’. https://shar.es/19jMNA The article allowed me to reflect upon my own PD as well as supporting others in their journey. In this webinar, I will share ideas and best practice on how to curate a professional development portfolio and tips to ensure that professional development sessions are designed meaningfully.”
