Critical friends protocol (teaching colleagues) is another focus group approach to assist in professional development and collaboration. This is additional element to include within a peer to peer feedback system.  Three models have been provided which can be modified to fit within your teaching and learning environments.

Making Games: The Ultimate Project-Based Learning | Mind/Shift | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it
Game making is one way to create a space where students are empowered to freely experiment with their own way of framing ideas and choosing perspectives. In this way, game making is tantamount to project-based learning.

"I’ve written a lot about metacognition in this series, emphasizing the importance of teaching kids to think about their own thinking. With game design students take metacognition to the next level, learning that ideas are constructed. They understand that knowledge is always framed from a particular perspective, with a particular kind of intention. The benefits of this kind of reflexive consideration are intellectual, social, and emotional."

 

I use metacognitive learning strategies within each and every class. I have found that in addition to teaching business English, I am also teaching my young Thai ESL  adult learners how to learn, think and reflect.
