Collaborating with Research Partners to Advance Quality Teaching and Optimum Learning

Date: August 24-25, 2017
Author(s): Dr. Barb Brown & Lori Pamplin
Presented at: Werklund School of Education Partner Research Schools Conference, Calgary, AB

Teacher leaders are often caught in the middle between improving their own teaching and learning, and at the same time, supporting their colleagues with teaching and learning improvements in an effort to improve overall student learning in the school. Drawing on research involving over 300 teacher leaders, presenters will share how district and school-based leaders work in partnership with teacher leaders and researchers. Mobilizing leading indicators of learning as evidence of teacher and student learning (collecting, sharing and reviewing artifacts of learning and negotiating what constitutes evidence of learning) is a key component in developing the adaptive expertise of teacher leaders.
