Good planning can make the difference when it comes to successful implementation of Quality Teaching Rounds in your school.
For teachers, the planning might start when you approach your school executive for approval to attend our QTR workshop. Use our short research summaries to help build your case for why your school should invest in Quality Teaching Rounds.
In our QTR Foundational workshop, participants are given time and resources at the end of the professional development to start mapping out how they will implement QTR in school. You can also get advice directly from our QTR Advisers, researchers, or other teachers through our members-onlycommunity forum.
Australian Professional Standards for Teachers
Participation inQTR helps teachers to identify and demonstrate their accomplishment of the Standards andreflect on areas where they can enhance their professional knowledge or practice.
One in seven schools in NSW directly mention Quality Teaching Rounds in their School Improvement Plans. Even more reference the QT Model.
We’ve helped school leaders integrate Quality Teaching Rounds into their strategic plans by mapping QTR to the NSW School Excellence Framework and What Works Best documentation. This interactive resource provides a comprehensive analysis of how and why teachers and schools who engage in QTR can connect, strengthen and evaluate their practices in line with system wide priorities.
The National School Improvement Tool (NSIT) was developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research for the Federal Department of Education in 2012. We have developed a document that demonstrates the alignment of QTR and the QT Model with nine domains of the NSIT and provides school leaders with a summary, detailed mapping and evaluation instruments for schools.
