May 9 Leading Collaborative Learning: Empowering Excellence

with Lyn Sharratt and Beate Planche
Purposeful collaboration makes a difference. A BIG difference. Not just because it’s a way to better understand specific causal pathways that lead to success. But because when teachers employ an inquiry mindset, they actually advance their instructional expertise as professionals. In this webinar, Lyn Sharratt and Beate Planche introduce to school leaders at large five high-impact, collaborative strategies for “sharing the learning while doing the work” of system and school improvement.

  • Co-learning Cycle Protocols use collaborative inquiry through the 4C’s (Co-planning, Co-teaching, Co-Debriefing and Co-Reflecting) to nurture deeper professional co-learning focused on refining classroom practice
