This resource illustrates how e-learning examples can be used to support the Practising Teacher Criteria. The twelve criteria have been "unpacked" with examples provided for each criterion. While the Teachers Council were not involved in the creation of this resource, their feedback was sought in the consultation phase and they link to this page from their website.
Teachers and schools can decide how to best make use of this information in relation to their individual contexts. Some suggestions on how to use this content include:
- teachers identifying how their current practice in e-learning relates to the criteria in order to record this in official appraisal documents
- teachers using the examples of how other educators incorporate e-learning in relation to the criteria in order to develop their own practice and set goals
- school leaders supporting teachers to develop goals related to the criteria which incorporate e-learning.
