Spurring Growth in Teacher CPD Sessions

Teacher CPD

Every educator’s journey is inherently intertwined with the continuous process of learning and development. Central to this evolution is feedback – a powerful yet often overlooked element. 

Feedback in teacher Continuing Professional Development (CPD) isn’t just about evaluation; it is a catalyst that spurs growth, fosters innovation, and shapes a positive educational landscape.Feedback in CPD sessions isn’t a one-way street. It isn’t about delivering a monologue of performance analytics or a list of areas for improvement. Instead, it should be a dialogue that is as much about listening as it is about speaking. It’s about creating a space where experiences, insights, and perspectives can be shared openly and constructively.

At humanutopia, we’ve recognised the transformative power of feedback. Each Teacher CPD session is designed to be a dynamic and interactive space where educators are not just passive recipients but active contributors.

Crafting Constructive Conversations:

  • Open Dialogue: Encouraging educators to share their perspectives fosters an environment of mutual respect and collaboration.
  • Reflective Practices: Integrating reflection into feedback helps in internalising learning, fostering self-awareness, and encouraging adaptability.
  • Actionable Insights: Feedback should empower educators with clear, actionable steps for continuous growth and development.

Constructive feedback illuminates the path. It highlights strengths to be leveraged and challenges to be addressed. It’s a mirror that reflects the current reality and a window that opens up possibilities for the future.

Our approach to feedback is embedded in empathy and understanding. Led by our very own expert in education, Graham Moore, our CPD sessions are not just about imparting knowledge but are spaces where experiences are valued, voices are heard, and feedback is a shared journey. It’s about understanding that every educator is both a teacher and a learner.

As schools navigate the intricate landscape of education, effective CPD should remain our compass. It is not a judgement but a guiding light. In the safe, supportive spaces of our teacher CPD sessions, feedback is transformed from an evaluative tool to a catalyst for growth and innovation. In this nurturing environment, educators are empowered to evolve, innovate, and shape a future where learning is a journey shared, celebrated, and cherished by every individual.
