Professional learning is a lifelong, dynamic, and continuous process. As long as you are working in the ISL field, you will be expanding and strengthening your competencies. The direction of your professional learning will be influenced by emerging research, changes in the needs and interests of society, and changes in your personal interests or opportunities. The Framework can help you be strategic in your learning. While all the competencies are associated with successful ISL work, the level of proficiency or expertise you may want to develop in each area will be influenced by your circumstances, preferences, and opportunities.
Should you aspire to the highest level in all the competencies? Probably not. Most professionals find a balance between the level of competency that is appropriate for a current position and the level that aligns with aspirations for their career or for desired impact within the field.
The Framework and the associated resources are designed to help individuals assess their current and their desired level of competency and then plan their professional learning.Download the Framework
