The Teacher Perspective: The Value and Impact of Learning Experiences
This chapter provides insight into three key learning experiences that teachers valued as they worked as self-directed learners: guest speakers, talking with other teachers and reflection. The chapter also identifies why and how these particular experiences impacted teacher thinking and action, in particular how these experiences enabled teachers to develop self-efficacy, align reasoning with action and value their own expertise.
