Collaborative Teaching Practice


This online, self-paced course supports teachers as they initiate and engage in collaborative teaching practice in their own schools.

Participants will work through four modules addressing practical strategies for embedding collaborative practices across their schools.

They will explore strategies and frameworks for building positive collaborative teams in schools and understand the impact this can have on student learning and engagement.

This course is best completed in collaboration with a teaching team. Learning activities are practical and applied, and encourage participants to work together to develop team protocols then work through the whole co-teaching cycle together.

Participants will reflect on their new teaching practices and teaching team with a school-based supervisor.

This course is ideal for teachers who are learning to work in collaborative teaching teams in existing, refurbished, and new schools.
