British Council Webinar: Teacher Activity Groups: An effective model for professional development?
Presenters: Simon Borg, Amy Lightfoot & Radhika Gholkar
Several professional development projects delivered by the British Council in recent years have used a community of practice (CoP) model called Teacher Activity Groups (TAGs). In this webinar we will explore what makes the TAG model unique and present the results of a review of six TAG projects in different parts of the world. The review aimed to answer these questions:
- How have TAGs been implemented in British Council CPD projects in different countries?
- What evidence is available from these projects about the impact of TAGs on teacher development?
- What challenges for the impactful implementation of TAGs do these projects highlight?
- What are the conditions required to make TAGs effective?
