Making Professional Development A Habit

Making Professional Development A Habit | My Possibility Spaces | Scoop.it

"Learning is lifelong, continual. In order to have true professional development, participants have to get together and commit to continue sharing the learning.

 

Professional development must stay in the rotation on a permanent basis. It must be calendared in as we would an important appointment–it’s an appointment with ourselves. In a way, it’s a lot like physical fitness. Many people fail to reach physical fitness goals because they do not have the right approach. By committing to work out regularly, doing a favorite activity, and maintaining positive consistency, you will see improvements in all areas–not just physical. Professional development is the same thing."

While it seems logical that teachers would realize the importance of continued professional development, this article reminds us that we must plan to grow professionally and that it is the educator's responsibility to know their options and learning style.  Thanks for a great, inspiring article.

Koffee With Karan - Season 4 - Aamir and Kiran on Koffee With Karan

Aamir Khan's interview 

Sinduja V's insight:

Aamir Khan speaks like a practitioner - he is genuine and real. Good to see actors like him who have transited from physical layer and are unfolding possibilities in knowledge and inner layers as well

This girl has shown that we have the strength within us to stand up against all odds if we truly aspire for something higher

The day I learnt to say "I don't know"

During my school days, I had gone over to my friend's house to have lunch. My friend was very intelligent, bright and smart - a 'know it all'. So very smartly he said that some 'aubergine' dish was on the menu.While eating, I said that liked it. So my friend asked me if i liked Brinjal and I said i hated it. I had no idea what aubergine was and I didn't connect the two!

Sinduja V's insight:

I realised that day, that it is okay to say "I don't know" or ask some one what something means rather than feeling that I know it all.

Being Heroic - "have no fear"

“The earth is enjoyed by heroes”—this is the unfailing truth. Be a hero. Always say, “I have no fear.”

 

“Face the brutes.” That is a lesson for all life—face the terrible, face it boldly. Like the monkeys, the hardships of life fall back when we cease to flee before them.

                                                                         

                                                                                               - Swami Vivekananda
