Professional Development

Education, neuroscience and research, like medicine, are some of the few professions that are in constant flux thanks to improved technology and a better understanding about how humans learn. The best professionals reflect on their practice, identify areas that can be improved upon and use evidence to sustain decisions about interventions in the classroom or research in the field.

Teaching is as much an art as it is a science, and those who dare to teach must never cease to learn.

(Cotton, 1900)

At Connections, we accompany educators in a personalized review of their development as professionals and guide them towards a perfection of their craft through courses, personalized support.

We complement the professional development that teachers normally receive in school settings by organizing work so that each professional gains the skill sets he or she needs to become a better teacher or school leader in order to respond to personal goals as well as stakeholder demands.

At Connections, we have developed a range of courses focused on each participant’s domain level. The combination of Mind, Brain, and Education Sciences, Visible Thinking, and information from the OECD publication Pedagogical Knowledge and the Changing Nature of the Teaching Profession (2017), are the starting points for the following professional development tracks that respond to the challeneges of 21st century education in a holistic and transdisciplinary way.

We invite you to check the variety of topics and levels of professional development.
