Are you keeping up with the new developments in the educational profession?

In the Netherlands there is now an index to keep track of progress of teachers. On a voluntary basis, but the aim is to promote the use of the 160 hours norm. School teachers are expected to spend 160 hours a year on their professional development, such as pedagogical skills. Whether this index will really be a stimulation for training, is discussed in this article by Intermediair (in Dutch).

There might be chances here for e-learning courses to help keep teachers up to date. It allows them to spend their time on training in a flexible way and to follow a personal trajectory.

I am currently starting work on building online training courses and platforms for teachers at OnderwijsNu.
