OPGES Self-Reflection and Professional Growth Planning

Published: 7/23/2014 11:57 AM
Self-reflection is a process by which Other Professionals assess the effectiveness of their  planning, implementation, content knowledge, beliefs, and dispositions for the purpose of self-improvement. The goal of self-reflection is to improve through ongoing thinking on how professional practices impact student and teacher learning.
The goal of a professional growth plan is to facilitate the translation of growth needs identified through self-reflection and other processes into practical activities and experiences that are of value to Other Professionals in strengthening their competencies in the identified growth need areas.
Self-reflection and professional growth planning are sources of evidence used to determine an educator's Overall Professional Practice Rating.
