Formatted Abstract/Summary
The aim of this study is to design responsive and supportive interventions across a school to embed practice initiated through participation in a previous professional development program. An initial survey and focus group discussions were used to identify teachers' current understandings and classroom practices and to determine the teachers' perceptions of their own needs for embedding professional learning in practice. The results were used to design further researcher-practitioner collaboration and ongoing school-based support to assist teachers in enacting their professional learning. This is a two-year project. At this early stage, changes have been identified in cross-school curriculum planning to incorporate professional learning; classroom practices are being shared among researchers and teachers through modelled lessons and discussions; the school leadership team are supporting ongoing professional learning for all school staff, including ancillary and non-teaching staff and the parent community.
