Free CPD posters : You’ll fly with CPDPD!

Jan 16, 2013

Category: Teaching    Tags: , , ,

The eight posters below came as a result of a collaboration on the theme of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) — or PD as it’s known in the US — between ourselves and one of our Twitter followers, @paulyb37. Initially, he came up with the first poster idea (“In the event of a sudden drop in pupil progress, please address your own learning before helping children with theirs”) and then we took his theme and went a bit overboard.

The idea is that, through a bit of humour, these posters can be used to advertise the fact(s) that:

  • we need to attend to our own learning when addressing pupil progress,
  • professional development is a cup of coffee with an inspiring teacher or a good book as much as it is an INSET course,
  • good teachers are always learning,
  • scepticism, jargon and negativity can take a running jump – developing as teachers keeps us on our toes and is actually quite rewarding.
  • So, enjoy the posters – please share any pics if you put them up – we love to see things being used. And make sure you follow and send your Twitter-based thanks to @paulyb37 who started this particular airline-based ball rolling.
