Palestra: Professional Development for Teachers - Making wiser and more informed choices

Speaker: César Bizetto - Head of Teaching, Learning & Assessment at São Paulo Open Centre 

Seeking for continuous professional development is an intrinsic part of the routine of an educator. Therefore, it is vital to establish goals and analyze how they can be achieved.
