Welcome to the first issue of our thirty first volume. The issue is available as usual via this website and also by subscribing to the paper version. Also online here is a free selection of back articles and some extras in the TTTJ Plus section!
We have quite a few articles about observation and feedback in this issue. All are from different perspectives: reducing teacher stress (page 2), making peer observation effective (page 5) and as part of late career professional development (page 17).
We bow to the current obsession with discovering and using high tech tools: How to use a MOOC as a primer for teacher training courses (page 11) and how to use internet tools to increase student teacher participation (page 16).
We return to the issue of late career professional development (page 17).
An article raises the timely and important topic of teachers joining unions (page 20).
Another current theme is the migrant crisis and an article explores the role teacher education organisations can play (page 22).
We are, as ever, a very practical journal so there is a neat idea for using road signs as visual stimuli with trainees (page 24).
We have a book review (page 25) and there have been interesting articles and other interesting books published recently that make useful reading for us teacher trainers, teacher educators and mentors (Pages 27 and 28).
I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
All good wishes
