The new CBA 2011-12 Program member are beginning their journey today. I sit and listen knowing the learning they will experience over the next 9 months.
Suddenly the thought occurs to me just how valuable these projects are not only for the project out puts but for the opening up of thinking and freeing educators to look at things from a better view or at least different view.
On top of that, there is the nurturing of experienced educators and providing the opportunity to spread there knowledge, project management and public speaking skills to other members of their organization.
Faces in the group move from frown to smile from deep though to realisation, reminding me so clearly of my own experience. The first real, time most of our group have had to research and discuss learning professionally with our peers.
Concentration of thought on assessment, it’s purpose, objectives and outcomes. The big question of “Why we are doing what we are doing and how.”
