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 after-school workshops support teachers in applying action learning to improve teaching and learning for Stage 6 students. Each workshop is unique and subject specific. Participants will collaborate with subject-specific colleagues from across the state to

  • share and analyse teaching and learning evidence from their classroom
  • reflect on and plan to improve subject-specific teaching practice
  • contribute to our growing research base.
