Professional Learning Communities: 12 Actions to guide the work of collaborative teams

Details

The Professional Learning Communities process is supported by research and endorsed by educational researchers at all levels as our best hope for sustained, substantive improvement. But what is a professional learning community? In this one-day institute, Gavin Grift and Colin Sloper, who recently revised Learning by Doing for the Australian context, will outline the three big ideas that drive the PLC concept, offer practical strategies for bringing those ideas to life and share collective learning from schools throughout Australia that are using those ideas to have a profound impact on student and adult learning.

In this session, Gavin and Colin will share their learnings from over the last ten years of taking the PLC research and making it a reality in schools. Learn about the 12 actions collaborative teams must take to truly transform student learning and discover ways to provide time and support for collaborative teams during the school day. Leave the day with a blueprint for collaborative teams to use in their ongoing efforts to transform learning for students and teachers back in school. 

Objectives and Outcomes 

  • Learn how the actions required for teams to answer the critical PLC questions. 
  • Discover the true work and focus of high-performing collaborative teams
