Collaborative Professional Learning


Catholic Education Office WA established a systemic strategy to support continued improvements in teaching and learning in all schools, underpinned by the Collaborative Professional Learning and Collaborative Professional Learning in Action (CPLiA) models.

CPLiA was transferred into the classroom by developing teacher knowledge (content, pedagogy and assessment), through processes such as peer coaching, collaborative teaching, lesson observation and discussions, and by developing an on-site model of teaching and learning in an identified focus area. The school was the centre of learning for teachers, as well as for students. Teachers were empowered, and given time to focus on their professional learning.
