Workshop: Turning Experience into Expertise: Collaborative Inquiry as Professional Development (9 November 2015)

The 'workshop' or 'training session' is the most typical form of professional development for educators. And yet, the most powerful sources of information about the quality of teaching and learning in a school are often ignored.

Collaborative inquiry groups provide educators with the opportunity to examine closely their own practice, defining essential questions about their work and pursuing these questions collaboratively and systematically over time. In this workshop, we will focus on the process of collaborative inquiry and the key decisions that must be made in order to establish and sustain collaborative inquiry groups. We'll discuss benefits and challenges of collaborative inquiry groups, paying particular attention to the critical process of generating and refining powerful questions that guide collabrative inquiry.

Workshop by Tina Blythe. Workshop is full.
