One approach we use is the Action Research Model. This model of professional learning is a proven and effective way to implement change in an ongoing and practical way.
Our work is supported by a number of processes and tools including:
- Discussion protocols for examining student learning
- Protocols for collaborative reflection on teaching practices
- Staff and student surveys
- Strategies for making thinking visible
- Evaluation tools
We have many years’ experience in providing professional learning targeted to the needs of teachers and in planning with teams in order to effect change. In our delivery of professional development sessions, we model the use of tools and strategies that teachers can take back and use in their own classrooms.
