“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”

– Amy Poehler

As people become more diverse in their skill sets, organizations become increasingly complex and the challenges our world faces seem to grow exponentially, people are becoming less reliant on the individual to fight the tide of change. Collaboration is vital in all workplaces as it provides opportunities to hear from all voices, perspectives and viewpoints which promotes better ideas to rise to the top. Schools are no exception to this and have become environments more and more reliant on the ability to work with colleagues towards the common goal of supporting students’ growth, learning and wellbeing.

In this workshop, participants will take a deep dive into developing impactful Professional Learning Communities (PLC) within their immediate teams or schools. Focusing on the five domains of effective PLCs using ACER’s Framework, educators will walk away equipt with the knowledge required to establish new PLCs or increase the efficacy of established collaborative groups. Through the exploration of the main principles of effective PLCs, defining the driving questions for your group and gathering an understanding of what types of activities promote growth of PLCs, this workshop will provide a roadmap to increasing collaboration within your school.
