Domains and Competencies

The most difficult part of being a professional teacher is change. We are able to adapt to challenges we face to the future developments in education, technology and student learning with involvementsupport and training from our federation (OSSTF), our colleagues and our partners (such as DSBN).

In Ontario there are 16 competencies that are grouped within 5 domains.1 The purpose of these competencies for teachers is to provide an “effective and supportive way to help them improve their teaching practice” and “become confident and proficient Ontario teachers”.2

The following pages explain how I strive to meet these competencies. Like this blog, the ways that I meet these competencies are an active and on going process that changes or adapts as education, technologies and our students do.

The 5 Domains:
1/ Commitment to Pupils and Pupil Learning
2/ Professional Knowledge
3/ Teaching Practice
4/ Leadership and Community
5/ On Going Professional Learning
