Professional Learning in Canada: Learning Forward Releases a Landmark Study and Call to Action
Learning Professional, v38 n1 p20-21 Feb 2017
Learning Forward recently released findings from a new study that fills a long-standing gap in existing Pan-Canadian research, identifying key components of effective professional learning based on findings from educators' experiences in Canada. Accompanying the study is a call to action by Michael Fullan and Andy Hargreaves making the case for a culture of collaborative professionalism for educators. The study, "The State of Educators' Professional Learning in Canada," is the work of a research team led by Carol Campbell, associate professor of leadership and educational change at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. The report examines the professional learning that educators experience in the provinces and territories of Canada--recognized internationally as a high-performing education system. The study's purpose is to advance a priority focus on the elements of and conditions for effective professional learning in Canada and across the world. "Our intent in doing the study was not to argue for a uniform approach to professional learning across Canada; rather, it is the opposite," Campbell says. "The purpose was to understand, value, appreciate, and respect the rich mosaic of educational experiences and diversity of approaches and outcomes from professional learning within and across Canada's provinces and territories."
