In the context of school self-evaluation, professional collaborative review of teaching and learning can take a number of forms. For example, it can take place in a team-teaching context where two teachers engage in collaborative planning for and teaching of a number of lessons. They subsequently reflect collaboratively on those lessons and specifically on the teaching and learning that took place. Alternatively, a teacher may invite a colleague to engage in professional review of a lesson or lessons. This may involve observing a lesson and subsequently discussing it in a reflective way. Another possibility might involve a group of colleagues gathering to discuss samples of student work and how the next steps in learning might be taken for the students involved.
See page 37 of the SSE Guidelines for further information on this tool.
Below are some sample resources to support professional collaborative review as part of your SSE process.
