I would like to capture the changes our teachers make to their teaching through reflection of their delivery. I can make up a template that would capture this simply without imposing a lot of writing and clarification. Has anyone already done this and is using it? Especially in the trades the teachers adapt all the timeso to have this collected in a simple form would provide a data set for use to mentors, research and teacher development.

Hi Karen

Really good question and will love you to share the answer when you find it. From my perspective you may need to clarify the following:


a)      If you are talking about a teacher changing their whole delivery  then the answer may lie in your TAS/delivery plan. The TAS must reflect the students training plan so major change requires them to  re-write this.


b)      If you are talking about a model of peer enhancement through a collaborative peer review/reflective practice model  where the teacher reflects on their own practice following a peer discussion, then this process concludes through a reflective journal based on structured key questions? In my view there are not many teachers doing this and certainly not documenting the process. As you will already know, there are some great reflective practice models that may provide you with a structure for a template. Try looking at Goslings Peer review model (Gosling, 2002, p5).

Let me know how you go.

Yes....Pinterest, but there are some fantastic and simple examples that could be very easily contextualisd to your needs

Let me know how you go......

Good luck

Think of the community area as the new 'town square' or office 'water cooler'.


Social media are computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation and sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.

The variety of stand-alone and built-in social media services currently available introduces challenges of definition; however, there are some common features:

User-generated content, such as text posts or comments, digital photos or videos, and data generated through all online interactions, is the lifeblood of social media.

Users create service-specific profiles for the website or app that are designed and maintained by the social media organization.

Social media facilitate the development of online social networks by connecting a user's profile with those of other individuals or groups.

The Community area is for free ranging discussion, a place to meet people and share ideas.

Don't forget to leave comments or like posts by other users.


Think of the forum area as the formal discussion area, you may also request help here in the technical forum.


An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.

They differ from chat rooms in that messages are often longer than one line of text, and are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible.

Forums have a specific set of jargon associated with them; example: a single conversation is called a "thread", or topic.

A discussion forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of subforums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum's topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish.

The news area is for broadcasting general interest articles to the whole community.


A blog (a truncation of the expression "weblog") is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries ("posts").

Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic.

In the 2010s, "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and sometimes professionally edited.

Blog broadcasts reach the whole community via the news area, broadcast emails and via Twitter.
