Summary

This report provides the findings of a study designed to investigate the efficacy and feasibility of Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR). QTR is a form of teacher professional development designed to bring together the benefits of professional learning communities (PLCs), instructional ‘rounds’, and the Quality Teaching (QT) pedagogical framework (NSW Department of Education and Training [NSW DET], 2003). QTR involves teachers working in PLCs of three or more teachers to observe and analyse each other’s teaching, using the QT framework.
