Please note that AITSL will be launching a new website on 25 July 2017 with enhanced functionality to help you easily find and access our content.

As a result, the Teacher Toolkit will be decommissioned shortly after the new website is live.

The Teacher Toolkit will continue to remain accessible online for a couple of weeks after the launch of the new website, but any links to resources within the Teacher Toolkit will no longer work.

All the Toolkit content will be available on the new AITSL website at www.aitsl.edu.au and we encourage you to add our new site to your bookmarks.

If you encounter an issue or can’t find content you’re looking for in the new website, please contact us.

Description

Classroom observation makes teaching and learning more visible. It encourages colleagues to collaborate to improve teacher practice and student learning. But which classroom observation strategy should you choose?

 

These resources provide an introduction to some common observation strategies. Combining instructional guides and accompanying videos, the resources explain all you need to know to choose and implement an appropriate classroom observation strategy for your school.

 

What is Instructional Coaching? A coach working one-to-one with a teacher, to model and observe classroom practice and to support reflection and professional conversation about practice. The aim is to build a partnership to develop evidence-based teaching practices.
