Enhancing Teaching Expertise

What is teaching expertise and how can we develop more of it?

Effective teaching is complex, relational and contextual. Supporting diverse students to make progress across a broad range of valued outcomes requires high levels of adaptive expertise.

So how can educators continue to enhance their expertise? And what could this look like in busy schools with teachers who feel overloaded?

Participants will learn about:

  • Understand the emerging science of expertise development
  • Provide a rapid overview of the essential elements of effective professional learning
  • Examine the practical challenge of shifting ingrained habits of practice
  • Identifying our expertise gaps and prioritising areas for deliberate development
  • Explore practical models of collaborative professional learning that can work in busy schools with overloaded educators
  • Understanding the core phases of the Teaching Sprints process
