Reflective Practice Groups: A Visionary Journey of PD
IATEFL Webinar presented by Burak Aydin
This webinar is about a collaborative PD activity, Reflective Practice Groups (RPGs), which might serve as an insightful way of improvement for language teachers.
Based on the presenter’s research on an RPG case conducted in 2020, this session will lay out the fundamentals of the activity and advocate ways of developing through RPG meetings. The presenter will particularly discuss the tenets of the practice and how RPGs differ from other teacher gatherings so that the audience can successfully initiate their own contextual practices in the future.
The ultimate aim of the presentation will thus be to promote RPGs as impactful sites of development for those teachers who value being a part of communities of practice.
