I’ll never forget this piece of advice I was given very early in my career – we are responsible for our own personal development; no one else can do it for you.

Reflection in personal development

Tags: opinion, professional learning, short articles One of the things I believe is most appealing about this book is its relevance across a range of subjects and stages of schooling – it is up to you as the pedagogue to adopt or adapt according to the needs of your students and broader teaching and learning environment.
