Welcome to the What Matters Reading Group! We have a simple approach – we work together to read, think, discuss – and then we let change and action look after itself . . .
We are currently discussing ‘What works in professional development?‘ by Tom Guskey and Kwang Yuk Soon. Click on the link to download the article.
How you can get involved:
- Read the article and leave your thoughts and comments using the ‘Comments’ facility on this blog post. We hope others will respond, and the conversation will develop.
- Join our twitter virtual meeting. We will be discussing this article on twitter – on 22nd November, 2016 – 7pm-8pm UK time. Our twitter handle is @whatmattersUoN and we will use the hashtag #wmedchat. Please use the hashtag or we wont see your tweets! (We will ‘storify’ the chat if you can’t make it, or time zones make it impossible to participate).
- Why not organise your own reading group to discuss the article? You can arrange this when you want, where you want, with whom you want! From two of you over coffee to a whole staff meeting or with colleagues from other schools. Whatever works for you. All that matters is that you read, think, discuss. If you do this, why not write a short summary of your discussion and post it on the ‘Comments’ section here?
