The Professional Development SIG (special interest group) is pleased to announce our first study group. This will be a reading group. Other types of study groups, including a Portfolio Development self-help discussion group, will be launched shortly.
The first reading group will undertake

The Preliminary schedule for the group is:
Jan 10-20. Acquire books. Read Chapter 1 (The nature of teacher education).
