Five Essential Questions and Four Key Values
Corwin’s Collaborative Expertise provides a comprehensive method of engaging educators in a cycle of learning through inquiry. This practical and evidence-based framework, developed by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey supports:
• Planning and implementation in support of student learning
• Building of teacher agency over their learning
• Cycles of assessment, reflection, and decisions that lead to greater impact
• Monitoring collaborative impact on teacher and student learning
Building upon prevailing Professional Learning Communities (PLC) methodology, this framework is aimed at refreshing current collaborative structures, and helps support teachers’ decision-making in the context of individual and collective efficacy, expectations, equity, and the activation of their own learning.
5 ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS are:
PLC structures were developed with the focus of ensuring that students learn. However, keeping student learning at the forefront requires that we also recognise the vital role that you play in the equation of teaching and learning. This means that collaboration must take on two additional challenges: maximising your individual expertise, while harnessing the power of the collaborative expertise you can develop with your peers. It is critical that we go beyond the examination of student learning and examine teacher learning as well.
