Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Innovative Learning Environments - school facilitation guide


This page contains resources for school leaders who will facilitate SLEC's professional learning course 'Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Innovative Learning Environments' in their schools.

They are for use in schools that are working with SLEC through the Integrated Professional Learning Model.

Using these resources, school leaders can run the course in two ways:

  • Using a flipped learning model.
  • Using an activities-only model.

In this model, teachers watch short videos in which SLEC advisors present information on aspects of collaborative teaching practice.

After watching each video, teachers work on an activity. Some are group activities and some are independent.

A facilitators guide is provided to help school leaders work through the flipped learning content.

In this model, school leaders guide teachers through activities that build an understanding of collaborative teaching practice.

School leaders can use this page to choose activities that focus on the aspects of collaborative teaching practice that are most useful in their schools.
