As part of its monitoring activities, eTwinning launches an online survey to monitor teachers’ pedagogical practice as a result of participating in eTwinning and identify their professional development needs. The results will be shared in 2015 and they will help us to better shape the future CPD programme, according to teachers’ preferences.

The survey is available in 25 languages – You will find further information and the link to the questionnaire on your eTwinning Desktop. Fill in the survey before 7 November and enter into a draw for three tablets.
