With this free interactive self-assessment tool1 we would like to support you to reflect on your teaching practice and plan your professional development.

After answering our questions, you will get feedback about:
1.      the variety of tools, technologies and materials you use in your teaching;
2.      the variety of methods and strategies in your teaching;
3.      the ways in which you communicate with learners to create new knowledge.

Answering the questions takes about 10 minutes.

As  the project has been developed under an Erasmus+ school development project, we need to save your input and anonimously provided data for research purposes. You can read more about our research here. IP address or any other data identifying you are NOT collected. 
1 This assessment tool is based on the model described in Pamela Burnard’s book: Musical creativities in practice (Oxford University Press, 2012)
Please reflect on your teaching practice and for each statement choose an adverb of frequency that you feel most suitable for your current teaching.
