Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 22 October 2017
Notice reference #: 1H9fZY

Teachers are invited to join the second phase of a research project that aims to improve a planning tool containing information about the factors behind student learning (and failure to learn). In the first phase a resource was developed and refined, and in this phase this will be further improved and made into a searchable down-loadable planning tool. The app also provides suggestions to teachers for classroom practices and approaches that can improve the learning of their students, plus connections between the background factors and teacher actions.

A key feature of the resource is that the choice of information is under the control of the teacher. This makes it an ideal companion for creating interventions aimed at either class or individual levels, and for informing and supporting high quality Professional Inquiry.

This phase will involve a group of teachers in an individual and a group interview each term (or holiday), plus a day of classroom observation (by the researcher) each term. Teachers within a reasonable driving distance of Auckland are invited to email the researcher at r.lane@auckland.ac.nz with their contact details.
