Outside the hub: exploring underdog forms of TD
Organised by the Teacher Development SIG

Typically, when our profession thinks of development opportunities, we often default to certification courses, post-graduate programs, and conferences. Without question, these can be valuable modes for a teacher to develop professionally. However, they can have barriers to access that are out of our control. Additionally, these formalised approaches may leave participant contexts largely out of the equation or be organised from a more top-down perspective.

In this PCE, we seek to highlight the ‘underdog’ alternative forms of teacher development: those that utilise a localised approach to methodology, focus on teacher-driven needs, and create sustainable impact on curricula, attitudes, or practices.

Key questions we aim to address:

  • What teacher-driven approaches to TD are our community doing already that provide accessible alternatives to formalised training?
  • How do we create or adapt TD initiatives through a local lens?
  • What impacts do these alternative forms of TD on us that perhaps differ from more traditional approaches to TD?
