Anyone who is dealing with teachers and the registration and accrediation process for educators needs to listen to this podcast. It's very well produced, and the illustrations and examples are practical and easily applied. This is a great way for a teacher having to navigate the process on his or her own to access expert advice, and also for leaders who are assisting teachers on the journey to find a reference point for their role.
