Professional Learning Communities for School Improvement
This strand focuses on research studies that examine the selected Professional Learning Community (PLC) model and how this framework leads to enhanced collaborative cultures and improved practices.
Communities of Practice for Learning Improvement
This strand seeks proposals that explores what researchers and practitioners are doing to enhance the process of teaching and learning. Areas such as lesson study, peer coaching and reflective practice are particularly relevant to this theme.
Capacity Building For Institutional Growth
This strand calls for proposals that explore the various forms that leadership can take such as distributed leadership, teacher leadership, and co-leadership that lead to increased collaborative capacities within the school.
Policy and Governance
The focus of this strand is to explore the impact of policy development on school governance and/or on the way different forms of governance support or inhibit school improvement. Special focus will be given on issues of accountability and sustainability.
