Regularly evaluate and reflect on their professional practice and dispositions to improve and strengthen their ability to effectively model and facilitate technology-enhanced learning experiences rich professional learning programs that model principles of adult learning and promote digital age best practices in teaching, learning, and assessment.
Most recently I have had the opportunity to evaluate and reflect on my professional practice and disposition by creating my coaching portfolio, this commentary being an example of that work. This experience has allowed me to look back at my learning over the past two years and reflect on how I have proven competency in meeting the ISTE coaching standards. During this process, I have realized that many of my blog posts are intended to reflect on and evaluate my learning, however one that was particularly delightful to look back on was my post titled Professional Growth and Leadership where I reflected on my learning and experiences after my first year of the DEL program. In this reflection, I discuss the questions: Who am I? Where am I Going? How will I get there? I particularly enjoyed revisiting the goals that I set at the time and the questions I was eager to explore, included below. Now, a year later, it is exciting to see which goals I have met and questions I explored. It is equally motivating to see what I have to accomplish and how my goals and questions have changed and evolved with my experiences.
In addition to exploring my reflections on my learning through my mater’s program, I have also had many opportunities to reflect on and evaluate my teaching. My school district uses the Danielson Framework to evaluate teachers which requires that I set goals each year, reflect on my teaching, and provide evidence of how I meet various teaching standards. Below I have included my goals for this year and the reflection I completed at the end of last year.
