  4. A1The best CPD is the hands on stuff with an example and a chance to try it out yourself. #ukedchat
  5. @ukedchat #UKEdChat - A1. For me, some of the most effective CPD has been self-initiated and reflective.
  6. @UKEdSch Understanding behaviour as communication training, including attachment theory #ukedchat A1
  7. A1 I think no single one has stood out but usually take away something from all CPD, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. #ukedchat
  8. @ukedchat A1 Found organising my own events very interesting. When I've organised TM Essex, I learnt the presentations word for word! #UKEdChat
  9. @ukedchat #Ukedchat A1 Twitter - ongoing & always learning #TLT just amazing. Amazing CPD collaboration @current school. Staff come together to learn
  10. little and often works well - like ed chats, etc. keeps important issues at the forefront... #ukedchat
  11. @WillFastiggi Was it strongly advocating the theory, or was it critical? #ukedchat
  12. Some of the best CPD has been sitting in the workroom, chatting about something. Then trying it out the very next lesson... #ukedchat
  13. @digicoled @ukedchat Some of it! Not as much as some CPD videos I edited recently. 🙄#UKEdChat
  14. #UKEdChat Q2.
How did you manage implementing this CPD change into your teaching practice?

  15. @ICTmagic @ukedchat I agree, when you have to do it yourself you realise how difficult it can be to get it right. Less is more works #ukedchat
  16. @ukedchat Theory. It was good and stuck with me but I do find that CPD has to be self-driven. #UKEdChat
  17. I attended a brain gym CPD in one school I worked at. Compulsory... on a Saturday. #ukedchat pic.twitter.com/NfXJ4o8D1X
  18. Best bits of CPD events are often the 'break out chats' - cathartic release of stress & helpful sharing of ideas #ukedchat
  19. Informal networking at CPD events should be capitalised on.In these informal connections, lots of learning/reflection takes place #ukedchat
  20. A1 #ukedchat the best and most impactful PD is identified and done by you, not received from anyone. It should be a disposition career-long
  21. @ukedchat A1- process of obtaining QTLS especially professional formation. Now completing PT and OU sport course helping professional and personally
  22. #UKEdChat Q3.
How measurable, or noticeable, was the impact you found from your CPD?

  23. @ukedchat #UKEdChat #A2 Gave insight on how to encourage taking on challenges. Has helped with helping kids solve problems in ICT.
  24. @ukedchat In the sense that they shouldn't shy away from trying new things and sometimes they could make their own discoveries. #A2 #UkEdChat
  25. @ukedchat #UKEdChat A2- afl in classroom setting, development of PSHE programme, leading whole school health project
  26. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch #UkEdChat #A3 More noticeable with the personal CPD, networking and exchanging ideas with likeminded teachers.
  27. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi A3 #UKEdChat increase in student performance and engagement. Recent Outstanding rating for PSHE curriculum
  28. @WillFastiggi @ukedchat @Elizabethutch really hard to measure because knowledge gained through CPD is 'reinvented' in practice over time, building on existing knowledge #ukedchat
  29. A2 - you tend to change slowly but surely as a result of CPD - sometimes its a long game. #ukedchat
  30. CPD should be underpinning philosophy.Sooner we see learning as ongoing complex process rather than linear, finite one the better #ukedchat
  31. #UKEdChat Q4.
How can school leaders ensure that all CPD instigates positive change?

  32. A2 - quick hit/instantly effective strategies are sometimes procedural and not deep. #ukedchat
  33. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi #UKEdChat a4- making it part of a continual process, link to appraisal/targets but most importantly giving reflection&action planning time
  34. @UKEdSch Embrace the need for diverse range of CPD - what works, for whom and why - consulting teachers about what they need and want #ukedchat
  35. A4 - make it relevant and interesting to the individual, with element of choice. Always T&L based though... #ukedchat
  36. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @SWconsultancyUK #A4 #UkEdChat Seriously though, time is most important. We're overloaded nowadays so the time given would be the best thing.
  37. @WillFastiggi @ukedchat @Elizabethutch @SWconsultancyUK By not forcing them on a CPD course at all. Find what motivates staff or is perceived as a priority - start there. Buy in is huge factor
  38. @UKEdSch A4 #ukedchat Allow teachers to have ownership of their CPD by identifying which is most relevant for them.
  39. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi Partially it is about personal & organisational investment not just tick box/day out. Good cpd is linked to developmental aspects
  40. @UKEdSch A4 #ukedchat Provide time / opportunities for teachers to share effective practice learnt / developed from the CPD
  41. @SWconsultancyUK @ukedchat @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi As long as in linking2appraisal&targets,it does not become 'tick box' or extra pressure to be completed-you're right -should be continual
  42. @UKEdSch A4 #ukedchat Ensure that CPD is meaningful, practical and facilitates positive impact within the classroom / for students.
  43. #UKEdChat Q5.

  44. A4 #UKEdChat support & be actively involved in PD that is situated in your context informed by evidence. Practitioner enquiry does it for me
  45. @UKEdSch A2 #ukedchat By working with other teachers. Allows you to share ideas, discuss what works / what to avoid & makes it feel more purposeful.
  46. @ukedchat #A5 #UkEdChat Subject knowledge enhancement. We're expected to find our own time to do it.
  47. @WillFastiggi @ukedchat A5 #UKEdChat sharing with colleagues internal and external would be really great. Via seminars maybe....
  48. A4 make sure that staff have a choice of CPD. Ask them to feedback with either a blog or sharing what they learnt in a CPD session #ukedchat
  49. A5 opportunities for staff2discuss purpose of education,values that underpin their work&how2balance this with pressures of targets #ukedchat
  50. @SWconsultancyUK @WillFastiggi Some people would truly value it, whereas others not so much, I would have thought #UKEdChat
  51. #UKEdChat A3 sometimes they are very noticeable e.g. team teach. Others rake longer to implement
  52. A5 staff wellbeing - resilient staff improve student wellbeing and outcomes -as well as increasing retention of good teachers #ukedchat
  53. A5 I would prefer a CPD where other professionals attended and presented.T's, Librarians and business all learning from each other #ukedchat
  54. #UKEdChat A5 tangible help for reducing workload for career young staff.
  55. #UKEdChat Q6.

  56. A5 How to work in holistic / cross disciplinary ways in school, how to break down stiff subject silo boundaries #ukedchat
  57. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach A6- #UKEdChat i have delivered training or shared resources, informed policy /curriculum. Colleagues have shared at weekly briefing/twilight
  58. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach #UkEDChat #a6 We will e-mail each other if it's something we think will benefit then arrange to discuss more if needed.
  59. A6 f someone has gone on a course we ask them to share what they learnt at our weekly meeting or write a post for our blog #ukedchat
  60. A5 Inequality & education - CPD that explains 'the gap' and supports teachers to improve outcomes for young people #ukedchat
  61. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach A6 mini morning briefings where we actively take part like a class in what they learnt or share good practice from observations #UKEdChat
  62. A6 using a 'train the trainers model' - sustainable model where staff lead whole school training #ukedchat
  63. #UKEdChat Q7.

  64. @Elizabethutch @ukedchat @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach I think this informal forming of interest group is great - but agree with @elizabethhutch, also you risk losing those who might benefit most
  65. @ukedchat @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach @Vickycarl @innovative_pe A7 I've tried doing scrappy hand written notes, find I'm much more engaged in the session but find harder to share with colleagues #ukedchat
  66. A7 I tweet with the hashtag. Helps me share my learning but also have a reference to remember the important bits for write up #ukedchat
  67. @ukedchat @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach @Vickycarl @innovative_pe A7 Have also made detailed digital notes - easily shared and to look back on, but find it harder to engage in the session #ukedchat
  68. @ukcreativeed @ukedchat @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @rondelle10_b @TeachRankin @QuickTeach @Vickycarl @innovative_pe Yes it is difficult to do both. There should be time after to make notes but you are straight onto the next talk. Not easy! #ukedchat
  69. @UKEdSch Difficult to say from a school perspective although I know an increased number of Ts pursue CPD opportunities via teach meets etc #ukedchat
  70. @ukedchat @ukcreativeed @Elizabethutch @WillFastiggi @SWconsultancyUK @TeachRankin @QuickTeach @Vickycarl @innovative_pe A7 #ukedchat Oooh! Great Qn. Depending on what type of CPD it is, I use the following: Laptop Mobile Evernote Google keep Pen & note book
