The responses to my presentation at the recent ACEL conference have been very positive.
I am always interested in what others take away with from presentations and am happy to receive correspondence to explore ideas further.
From the emails I have received since it would seem that the following were key messages taken away:
1. Teaching should be seen as the Learning Profession - this my catch phrase at the moment.
2. Teaching, as a profession, should claim learning as its territory.
3. Best Practice should be seen as indicative practice rather than prescribed practice.
4. The challenges posed by the concept of Next Practice are worth exploring further.
The Innovations Unit in England has been pioneering the way with Next Practice in schooling and education.
I have included in the Links for this Blog some of the useful references developed by The Innovations Unit on Next Practice.
