2nd International Conference on: “Professional Development and Reflective Teaching”


Research Group on

“Applied Linguistics & the Teaching of Languages”

Organizes its second International Conference on:

“Professional Development and Reflective Teaching”

On  May 07th-08h,  2014



The idea of professional development and reflective teaching has been the mainstream in recent educational research, curriculum development, educational evaluation and in-service education. Professional development and reflective teaching have received indeed more attention over the years than most other methods in the social sciences. Nothing is everlasting or permanent in the world. Given the fact that society itself is constantly changing, our education must also undergo continual development and redevelopment. It is undoubtedly true that there is no education development without teachers’ active participation in curriculum formulation. This reveals the bottom-up orientation which calls first for development of teacher awareness before carrying any further research that opts for curriculum change. Equally important, it can be suggested that there could be no teacher development without the development and improvement of  teachers’ working-conditions which play a crucial key-role in any education or curriculum development.

  • Professional development
