Paul your suggestions are great. I will make the changes.--Bronwynh 04:37, 21 August 2013 (UTC)Be great to include either Bret or Amelia in each dimension.
Dim5: 'participate in a social learning environment (known as constructivist theory of learning)' might be better as 'participate in a social learning environment (in accordance with the constructivist theory of learning)' Yep
Dim5: what about learning conversations with learners? eg see http://www.verso.co.nz/professional-development/1032/open-teaching-sharing-responsibility-for-the-learning-process/
Dim6: 'Nothing like innovation to stimulate reflective practice.' might be better as 'Innovation is very effective in stimulating reflective practice. ' Yep
Dim7: might be good to include something on being inclusive in relation to culture, gender, disability etc. Also incorporation and recognition of prior experience and a degree of choice eg assessment topics (case studies etc) - will do
Dim8: might need to explain 'self-efficacy' - will doDim8: 'However, in New Zealand no such standards exist and by gaining a tertiary teaching qualification, teachers are on the right path since specific criteria must be met in the graduate profile. ' might be better as 'Although there are no universally-accepted national standards for tertiary teaching in New Zealand, by gaining a tertiary teaching qualification teachers do need to meet the specific criteria specified in the graduate profile.' Or maybe this should be split into two sentences?
Dim9: re usefulness of one-off workshops - this link might be helpful: http://www.verso.co.nz/tag/professional-development/ Yep
