In this unit students will critically analyse the different theories and practices that enable team-based and organisation-wide professional learning to occur. They will develop a theoretical and practical understanding of strategies for creating and sustaining professional learning communities. They will develop the knowledge and skills to re-culture educational contexts so learning, collaboration and student improvement can occur. The unit provides an opportunity to investigate how educational leaders design, implement and sustain successful learning cultures which result in improved teacher practice and student achievement.
In the delivery of this unit opportunities will include on-campus and off-campus options.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the concept of professional learning community (PLC) and the use of PLC process in schools and other educational settings;
2. Investigate the dimensions and critical attributes of PLCs;
3. Implement formal and informal tools and strategies to assess the educational culture in relation to the PLC process; and
4. Prepare professional development plans that implement the PLC process at the institutional or system level.
