In this talk we examine ourselves and our professional learning in two ways: first we look inward, to see what we can learn from within ourselves and ourselves in relation to others; and secondly we look outward to see what we as English language teaching professionals can learn from those outside our field. As English language teachers we naturally turn to others in our profession to help us learn about new developments in the field. Today, we turn our glance first inward, to see what our own reflective practice can teach us. Then we shift our gaze to see how those who are engaged in professions that are entirely different from our own can influence our behaviors in the school and classroom. Our ultimate goal is to connect and engage with our students in such a way that their success comes from our commitment to them with our hearts, as well as our heads.
