Collaborative Professionalism
Evidence, Examples and Applications

 

WORKSHOP THEME
Collaboration is the new chorus line of educational improvement. Whether teachers should collaborate is no longer an issue. Any profession worthy of its name depends upon people sharing their knowledge and expertise. The key question now is what are better and worse ways to collaborate? How do we design collaboration? What do we know about the relative merits of professional learning communities, lesson study, data teams, or school networks, for example? And how do we take promising designs from one place and use them effectively in another?

WORKSHOP FOCUS
In this workshop, based on his upcoming book due out in May, Andy Hargreaves doesn’t only inspire us to collaborate. Drawing on his research on different ways of collaborating in five countries, he shows us how to collaborate effectively with depth, focus, boldness and purpose.

In this highly interactive workshop, participants, from teacher teams to system leaders will use many different engaging learning styles to understand and practically apply the material before them so they build cultures of collaborative professionalism that are more collaborative, relational and trusting; and also more professional, challenging and precise.
