In order to implement the Guided Experience Approach, our research shows that an educator must possess a set of personal attributes.
The reason is absolutely foundational. A skill is not just a set of procedures or techniques. Some skills depend on personal qualities.
That is why professional development should always be couple with personal development. The overall context of teaching and learning are also critical because the way that the system operates – it’s culture and infrastructure – play a large role in whether some personal attributes can be developed or are allowed to be expressed. Everything in education is both separate and connected.
