Supporting teachers' professional development - A new webinar coming up

Teachers' Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is one of the main focuses of the Living Schools Lab project. The project offers different ways and formats to obtain new knowledge, new skills, share and exchange practice among the participating schools and beyond. The CPD opportunities provided within the LSL network are especially powerful because they are provided by not just the project partners but also by the Advanced Schools and individual expert teachers.

The following types of CPD is taking place in the project:

  • National Coordinators through Regional Hubs and National Focus Groups: offer webinars to whole network on particular areas of expertise
  • Advanced schools: Theme–related planned webinars; spontaneous offer for CPD Snacks based on school showcase activities or developments during the project; led by head teacher or lead teacher
  • Advanced Practitioner Schools: invited to all events and also free to offer to lead a spontaneous CPD snack
  • Pan-European coordination: CPD Snacks for short learning events, EUN-led and facilitating for LSL network. Including ‘hot-seat’ or leaders in dialogue for headteachers

The CPD Snacks are short learning events organised for the network members. Some of the Snacks are also open to external teachers. The next CPD Snack is a webinar organised on 26 September on "Collaboration and Sharing in an Online Community" and led by Irene Pateraki, an experienced teacher in the eTwinning teacher network. The webinar is open all everyone and you can sign up here.
