CPD for busy teachers

With conference season in full swing, I just know I’m going to walk out of the next talk thinking about how I really must make more time to keep up to date on my professional, and therefore personal development. Often I then do nothing until the next event, however this time I’ve actually got together some ideas for squeezing some food for thought into a busy timetable.

Nothing makes me so happy about commuting to work as the time to listen to podcasts and audiobooks. Having got through the entire Game of Thrones, Jane Austen, Sherlock Holmes, Stephen Fry, I’ve now turned to educational podcasts on my morning journey.

The Spark Creativity Teacher Podcast is brilliant, the 10 minute teacher podcast is compiled by Vicki Davis aka @coolcatteacher, I also love the creative classroom as well, and of course TED talks need no introduction, and these ones are particularly related to education.


The British Council provide a wide range of short, useful courses.

Finally at https://www.eltresearchbites.com you can read short articles on a variety of ELT related subjects .

Please leave a comment letting me know if this has been useful to you, and more importantly please share your own CPD tips!
