Students are very often encouraged to engage in self-assessment in the belief that this allows them to take ownership of their learning and contributes to the development of learner autonomy. Similar arguments apply to teacher self-assessment: by reflecting systematically on their competences, language teachers can become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses and take more responsibility for their own professional development. In this talk I describe the development and use of a self-assessment tool for language teachers and examine some of the challenges involved in encouraging teachers to assess their own competence.
