  • 11. PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT •  Is about change •  Takes time •  Needs to be in-depth •  Should be relevant, in context •  Is done with you, not to you
  • 12. DEFINITION OF CONCERN “The composite representation of the feelings, pre- occupation, thought, and consideration given to a particular issue or task is called concern.” Hall & Hord, p. 61
  • 13. CATERING FOR LEVELS OF CONCERN •  Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) •  7 levels that cater for the level of concern of each member of staff •  Awareness •  Informational •  Personal •  Management •  Consequences •  Collaboration •  Refocusing
  • 14. CBAM Level of concern Expression of concern 6. Refocusing I have some ideas about something that would work better 5. Collaboration How can I relate what I am doing to what others are doing? 4. Consequence How is my use affecting learners? How can I refine it to have more impact? 3. Management I seem to be spending all my time getting materials ready 2. Personal How will using it affect me? 1. Informational I would like to know more about it 0. Awareness I am not concerned about it
  • 15. AWARENESS •  "I don't know anything about ICT and am not interested“ •  The main focus for staff development at this level of concern is raising awareness. •  Strategies include: displays, notice-boards, orientation programmes, presentations.

  • 22. ONE-LEGGED INTERVIEW •  Begin with open-ended questions •  How is it going? •  What are you doing with (innovation)? •  How do you feel about the “innovation”? •  Probe to clarify understanding •  Tell me what you mean by … •  Give me an example of …
  • 23. OPEN-ENDED STATEMENT “When you think about [innovation] what concerns do you have? Please be frank, and answer in complete sentences.” Hall & Hord, p. 68
