The British Council is holding its first global online conference on the theme of continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers. With over 60 scheduled talks by speakers from around the world and panel discussions taking place between Wednesday 5 October and Sunday 9 October 2016, the Teaching for Success Online Conference promises to deliver a wide range of engaging and insightful presentations covering all aspects of professional development for teachers in all contexts.
Talks on each of the 5 days will be focus on distinct themes related to the different Professional Practices that make up the British Council’s new CPD framework for teachers and CPD framework for teacher educators.
All the presentations at the conference will be short – either 20 or 30 minutes – and are designed to engage participants in discussion, debate and reflection. Recordings of talks will be available and developed into accessible, bite-sized professional development resources as part of the British Council’s Teaching for Success approach.
