1 3 : 1 Developing teachers in developing schools
Six ways to give your teaching a developmental twist and how to promote teacher development in your school. 3 : 1 Duncan Foord, TED Afyon, May 2016

2 Sam says… “I spend so much time just keeping up that I haven’t developed as a teacher as I otherwise might have. You work so hard just to stay afloat that attending workshops and development programmes or reading books is the last thing on your mind when you have free time. You want to get away from work...not do more!”

3 3 myths of teacher development
You need to commit lots of time outside working hours You need to do it with colleagues You can be a teacher for 10 years and not develop at all

4 5 circles of development

5 1. Look at yourself in the mirror

6 Talk about your favourite teacher
Then discuss these questions: Would your students say the same about you? Was your favourite teacher your classmates’ favourite teacher too? Does your favourite teacher have similar beliefs, a similar approach, or similar style to you?

7 2.Video yourself

8 3. Get feedback from your students

9 We should speak more in class
We speak our first language too much in class The listening activities are too difficult Some exercises are too easy We learn useful vocabulary I wish the teacher would correct my mistakes more We could improve the appearance of the classroom The materials we use in class are interesting

10 Discuss these statements in groups
I like group and pair work in workshops The ideas in this workshop have been very clear so far I would like Duncan to involve us more The room we are in now could be better

11 4. Try before you buy

12 A and B. Talk about Ankara and Istanbul. What experience do you have of each city, what are the similarities and differences and which would you prefer to live in and why? C. Listen to the conversation between A and B. Don’t intervene. Make notes about the language they use.

13 5. Observe and be observed

14 Observe and be observed
If you do this regularly, what have you learnt from it? If you don’t do this regularly, what is stopping you? Is it fear, tradition, lack of time, organising it, other reasons?

Category: Professional development and values Level: “Proficient” teacher “Actively seeks observation and feedback on their own teaching, responds constructively to feedback after being observed, identifies many of their own strengths and weaknesses as a teacher, and is willing to be observed by colleagues.”

19 6. Do a course

20 Inner game theory In every human endeavour there are two arenas of engagement: the outer and the inner. The outer game is played on an external arena to overcome external obstacles to reach an external goal. The inner game takes place within the mind of the player and is played against such obstacles as fear, self-doubt, lapses in focus, and limiting concepts or assumptions. The inner game is played to overcome the self-imposed obstacles that prevent an individual or team from accessing their full potential Timothy Gallwey
