Some tips for the road

The lectures we shared during these days of celebration have given us plenty of food for thought.
Find below some tips the lecturers have generously chosen to share with those who could not be physically present.

Looking back…, looking forward

Continuous Professional Development is a life-long commitment , a moving target thus, sound advice is

*Be discerning
*Be selective
*Be open-minded
*Be active
*Be autonomous
*Be consistent
*Be reflective
*Be responsible

To this purpose, some reminders:
*If you do not have valid environments where to teach, all projects are inevitably shattered.

*If you do not have master teachers to observe and imitate, you stagnate. Professional paralysis and burn-out follows.

*If you fail to acknowledge that professional action is a craft to be learned most effectively through an apprenticeship system + accumulated experience you will always find reasons to ignore CPD.
