Professional Learning

At ALNS all teaching staff are part of a Teaching and Learning Research Hub. To strengthen our collaborative learning community, the six hubs will be focused on the following enquiries:

  • Metacognition
  • Learning habits and self-regulation
  • Seeking and responding to feedback to improve performance
  • Academic language
  • Challenge for all
  • Peer-assisted learning/coaching/mentoring

Each hub has a range of experience/expertise from across curriculum areas. Our collective responsibility and investment in each other’s development is central and strategies are shared across hubs. Each hub leads a Hub Review, allowing all teaching staff to observe learning in other classrooms.

To complement the hubs and to support colleagues in developing their practice further, Professional Learning Sessions (PLS) are available half termly.
