Professional learning in SA: what teachers said

13 OCTOBER 2016

A report released recently by the Teachers Registration Board (TRB) of South Australia examined professional learning activities undertaken by teachers in South Australia.

TRB audited 2254 teachers about their professional learning activities, and conducted an online survey and focus group interviews.

The report returned some interesting findings, including a degree of confusion among teachers about the difference between professional learning and those activities that are part of everyday practice. Teachers showed a preference for accessing face-to-face professional development, but also highlighted the challenges of this approach such as cost and availability.

If you have any questions about your professional development requirements, what activities to choose and how to record them, our website explains what you need to know here.
