Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

As you know, professional experience and organization is a result of your hard work. Most of that hard work goes unnoticed. A lot of teachers I know forget most of their side- experiences because they go above and beyond and never have any type of accountability to showcase that work. I have developed a tool for you that will assist in both your professional experience and organization. I have put together a set of three different professional development portfolio logs that will keep all that hard work and your volunteering organized and ready for review at a moment’s notice. These logs are a great way to organize your personal and professional experience. For every hour you instruct in the classroom, observe, attend conferences, and/or take advanced education classes, you need to log it down so that you can maintain and validate your personal, professional, and field experiences. These logs can be put together as a quick-reference, cosmetic portfolio binder that you can keep in your classroom or at home. The event sheets contained within these files can be taken with you to any event that will help build to your professional portfolio or resume. These logs provide the organization you need to fulfill any type of professional development event. I have provided several copies of these logs to multiple disciplines and professions already. Teachers, tend to enjoy these logs as they are custom for them. However, these logs can be used in multiple ways through diverse mediums across various professions.

NPQSL

NPQSL

In this resource you will have access to figure 4 (combined task) and all appendices from my NPQSL project. This project was passed in November 2017 with excellent feedback. I hope this resource is useful for anyone undertaking the NPQSL course. When writing mine I found it difficult to imagine how it should look so wanting to help anyone in the same situation. Please note that this is not the only way to structure appendices and project however I was successful with lots of strengths in the feedback and no areas for development!

Can You Handle The Truth?

Can You Handle The Truth?

Society seems to want to withhold the truth and make everyone believe that they are smarter than what they are and that their behavior is based upon circumstance, their environment, or lack of therapy or medication. Facing the truth about their abilities and work ethic can put a student back on track, and help them choose a good vocation, and understand and how they need to improve academically and behaviorally. This one hour presentation will give teachers the tools to confront students without condemning them and help them help students to evaluate their efforts and work to realistically look at their performance.

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

After completing my NPQML, I decided to embark on the SL course and what a journey it has been. I have poured my blood, sweat and tears into this document and received some outstanding feedback in regards to both the project and the completed log. A superb course for anyone interested in senior leadership within the education sector. Included in this package comes all 22 pages of the log with all appendices attached. Within the appendices are my 'Project Action Plan', 360 Diagnostic report and SLT and Governors report. All references are also highlighted in the log. Pseudonyms are used for school and individual identities. All I can say is that I wished I had the opportunity to see an example such as this when I was writing as the IOE provide very little in terms of examples. If you do download, please leave feedback :)
