My name is Colin Dorman and I am currently co-ordinating a pilot project for the GTCS called EducationHUB. EducationHUB provides a platform for teachers to read, review and share practitioner enquiry and teacher-led research projects. EducationHUB currently has 300 users and hosts a variety of articles related to different aspects of learning and teaching. I am aiming to build a community of teachers who are willing to share their work and/or engage in online professional dialogue with other teachers across Scotland.
There has been some amazing work taking place in local authorities throughout Scotland related to career-long professional learning and practitioner enquiry, such as probationer projects, teachers working towards post-graduate qualifications and school-based projects. EducationHUB provides an excellent opportunity for these teachers to showcase their work and to contribute to the professional learning of others.
I am appealing to professional learning and practitioner enquiry co-ordinators in local authorities to publicise EducationHUB and in particular to encourage individual teachers who have produced particularly high quality practitioner enquiries or teacher-led research to share their work with others.
EducationHUB can be accessed through the Research Portal of MyGTCS or alternatively can be accessed at: http://www.ed-hub.co.uk/account/register
If you require any additional information or advice regarding the educationHUB project please contact me (my details are included below).
Thank you for your time.
