Widjaja, Wanty
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (36th, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2013)
Opportunities for teachers to engage in collaborative learning to examine and reflect on their practice are vital for sustained professional learning. Lesson Study centres on teachers coming together with colleagues to plan, observe, and reflect on classroom teaching and learning as a Community of Inquiry. In this project, six teachers from three Victorian schools worked together with four coaches in two cross-school planning teams. Findings indicate that Lesson Study provides a vehicle for teachers to deepen their professional learning.
