Lifelong learners. Tools to improve
The questionnaire is intended to be used as a starting point, to make a ‘personal improvement plan’. After some time, it can be taken again to see improvements and make a new plan. It is advisable for each teacher to have a ‘mentor’ or ‘coach’ to help them to design a realistic plan based on personal reflection.
A teacher who is an agent of change is a lifelong learner and expert. That is why the improvement tools must favour the development of this professional profile, and so they will mostly be offered when requested and will be voluntary. They should be varied and adapted to the needs of each teacher. Reflective practice, co-teaching or co-coaching are some of the most effective ones.
