Professional Standards into the Future
Harbon, Lesley
Babel, v44 n1 p20-23 Nov 2009
At the end of 2008, the Professional Standards Project (PSP) management team conducted the final scheduled Project Advisory Committee meeting. The Project was to conclude in December 2008 with a final report and evaluation informing all stakeholders of the developments and achievements of what has to be termed a major national contribution to language teacher professional development. Interestingly, that final meeting dialogued not only the trends in the evaluation data from the implementation of Streams A and B in 2008, but also introduced the possibility of funding an extension of Stream A activities, as well as the development of a further Stream C for the benefit of language teachers in all Australian states and territories. Such developments late in 2008, thus, saw the PSP, rolled out from early 2007 to late 2008, now referred to as PSP Phase 1. This article describes an overview of the main trends found in the evaluation data from PSP Phase 1, and also the plans for the continuation and development of PSP Phase 2 activities over the period 2009-2010.
