Reflecting on standards

Course code: RG00319

As a credible and practical guide to reflect against, the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers are ideal. They provide a common understanding and language about best-practice teaching, which makes it easy to pinpoint those aspects of your practice that are effective, and those aspects that require growth. If you wish to take an active role in your professional development, this course gives you the practical tips and techniques you’ll need to do it.
