TLN is committed to a core principle that ‘teachers are the experts in teaching and should be involved in teaching one another’. Hence, our programs are, ‘by teachers for teachers’. People who present professional development programs for TLN are people who are currently in a classroom or leadership role or have very recent experience in those roles.
At TLN we use our network to identify teachers and leaders who are respected in their current workplace for being high quality teachers or leaders. We also look for teachers and leaders who are innovative in their practice. TLN then asks these teachers and leaders to share their practice with their colleagues through a professional development program. TLN provides training and support for these teachers and leaders to present professional development in the online environment.
