Willy Cardoso’s latest blog post is titled “What’s your CPD level?”.
Willy says, “In a recent interview, to be published soon at SEETA, I said:… how can you possibly measure and grade teacher development? Teacher development is messy, it’s contingent. Moreover, it is highly social and context-bound. Only the idea of ticking those boxes to move up from one level to the other makes me not want to develop. And that’s where the problem is. When you make teacher development a bureaucracy with hierarchies and ‘measurable competencies’, who will genuinely want to do it?”
