Professional Development wordcloud created using Tagxedo

Our first #LTHEchat took place last night. A big thank you to all who participated and listened in!

The topic for the chat was:  New ways to engage in bite sized professional development and was led by Chrissi Nerantzi and Sue Beckingham. The wordcloud above captures many of the responses to question 1.


Q1: What professional development activities do you currently undertake to keep your teaching practice fresh?

Q2: What are the challenges?

Q3: How do you deal with the challenges?

Q4: What other CPD opportunities would you consider?

Q5: If you are using Twitter for bite-size CPD, share some of the benefits for your development.

Q6: Can you share the different ways you develop a personal learning network (PLN) to engage with CPD

Q7: Any burning questions, you would like to share?


The answers to these questions and the discussion by tweets was captured using Storify. You can find the full story here
