Professional Learning Communities

Design and Implementation and the Impact on Student Success

Knowledge Mobilization Through Collaborative Learning Communities

Mobilizing the knowledge that will be learned through participating in a collaborative learning community is a fundamental consideration. This mobilization will happen in different ways which may include, but are not limited to, in-school sharing through a Professional Learn Team, staff meetings, department head meetings, and system PD opportunities.

Principals and teachers will grow significantly in their depth of understanding instructional and assessment strategies. As an aspiring principal, your leadership within collaborative learning communities will offer immediate and significant impact on student achievement. While teachers focus on instructional strategies to support student learning gaps, they will be addressing their own teaching gaps at the same time.
