Deepen Teacher Inquiry
Lead | Reflect | Grow: To enable teacher learning
THE MOST POWERFUL LEARNING TOOL…...FOR YOUR TEACHERS
We all know that professional learning offered in schools - while perhaps great at the time - very rarely has an ongoing impact on teacher learning or practice. Teachers head back into the business of their day-to-day activities after the event and very rarely do we get an opportunity to consolidate or apply our new learnings.
Now, we all know that the process of learning new things in a way that embeds in the long-term memory requires time to practice - to consolidate - to synthesise and to apply.
The lack of this activity after professional learning events makes learning superficial at best.
So, with that in mind - the process of an inquiry - for teachers - is the best form of learning there is.
We need a shift in approach. Here’s what that looks like:
This programme will help your teachers to:
Learn an easy to follow step-by-step inquiry process in which teachers can measure the impact their teaching actions are having on student learning.
Feel supported in using innovation and creativity in designing a teacher inquiry.
Feel more confident to measure the impact teaching actions are having on student learning.
Build your ability for deep reflection that leads to professional growth.
Understand how inquiry can be used to curate evidence for teacher certification and appraisal
How it works:
Teachers complete four half day sessions in which they design and implement an inquiry.
Teachers will make measures of the impact of their strategy on student learning.
You’ll build the confidence and capability to grow teachers professional practice
You will grow capability and new designs for teacher appraisal practice and teacher registration
