About HSC Action Learning Collectives

HSC Action Learning Collectives (HSC ALC) are after-school workshops aligned to HSC Professional Learning objectives and led by expert HSC teachers.

These workshops focus on supporting the adoption of a teacher as researcher mindset. They will provide opportunities to share, analyse and improve on Stage 6 subject-specific teaching practice.

In subject-specific groups, teachers will use an action learning approach to share and reflect on evidence from their classroom, such as a student work sample or teaching artefact, to support teaching practice and to improve student outcomes.
