Leader of Teaching and Learning
Teachers are, first and foremost, learners. We are constantly on the lookout for new ideas: we are driven to be even more effective for our students and colleagues. The challenge is that there is simply too much information at our fingertips. What we really need is ready access to others who have been there and done that, who have perhaps solved a problem of practice that we are facing, or perhaps who think differently about an issue, or perhaps who have implemented a change that we are considering, or perhaps who simply value the conversation with others in similar roles in a wide variety of schools. Imagine the value of feedback from others who hear your thinking, see what you are designing and implementing and offer insights and expertise, or curiosity.
ISV is delighted to convene Sharing Practice: a network for learning and teaching. Its purpose is to create a network of leaders of teaching and learning, facilitating:
stronger connections between schools
new professional relationships
a forum for new ideas
access to a range of perspectives
growing knowledge and understanding
finding solutions to problems of practice.
seeking feedback on an initiative you are leading.
