About HSC Action Learning Collectives
HSC Action Learning Collectives (HSC ALC) are after-school workshops aligned to HSC Professional Learning objectives and led by expert HSC teachers.
These after-school workshops are designed to support teachers to apply an action learning approach to improving outcomes for Stage 6 students. Each workshop is unique and supports the adoption of an evaluative teacher-as-researcher mindset. Participants will collaborate with subject specific colleagues to:
- share and analyse evidence from their classroom
- reflect on and plan to improve subject-specific teaching practice
- contribute to our growing research base.
