The health and well-being of our workshop delegates, our staff and the wider community are our highest priorities. We are closely following the advice of health authorities to guide our decision making in relation to hosting face-to-face workshops. Should circumstances change participants will be notified by email.
This workshop is designed to provide a refresher of the Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR) process for schools who want to ensure the fidelity of implementation. Participating teachers will work individually and collaboratively throughout the workshop to strengthen their understanding of the Quality Teaching Model and QTR processes.
This workshop will also include updated research findings into the impact of Quality Teaching Rounds from our current program of research Building Capacity for Quality Teaching. Teachers will have an opportunity to view, code and discuss a lesson using the QTR process as well as consider implications for quality teaching in their own setting through an Analysis of Practice activity. Additional support will be provided for schools in planning for implementation, including evaluating the impact of QTR.
All workshop materials will be provided.
