Research into language teaching has made great strides forward over the past decades. Long gone are the days when it was sufficient to teach some basic grammar and repeat lists of vocabulary. Teaching has become more sophisticated, where the learner takes centre stage.
Many nowadays believe that the effective teacher is the developing
teacher: it is ever more difficult to stand
still in one's development as an English language teacher.
Continuing Professional Development is a process
that helps teachers and managers meet the
challenges of their work and achieve their goals,
as well as those of their learning centre.
