  30. 30. What is ʻProfessional Practiceʼ? By practice we mean something quite specific. We mean a set of protocols and processes for observing, analyzing, discussing and understanding instruction that can be used to improve student learning at scale. The practice works because it creates a common discipline and focus among practitioners with a common purpose and set of problems. The real insight here is that you can maintain all the values and commitments that make you a person and still give yourself permission to change your practice. Your practice is an instrument for expressing who you are as a professional; it is not who you are.Wednesday, 25 May 2011
  31. 31. Joined up Professional Development for the Whole Workforce … in Schools • Use the research on learning and teaching to impact on student achievement • Studying classroom practice increases the focus on student learning • By working in small groups the whole school staff can become a nurturing unit • Invest in school-based processes for improving teacherʼs pedagogical content knowledge • Make space and time for ʻdeep learningʼ and teacher enquiryWednesday, 25 May 2011
