Teachers’ Time: Collaborating for Learning, Teaching, and Leading


"This report and brief unpack the organizational structures and conditions that support how schools organize teacher time and work in ways that prioritize and bolster teacher collaboration, ongoing professional learning and development, and enriched opportunities for student learning. The project looked at and evaluated:
• The schools' reorganization of teacher and student time within the school day;
• Teacher and student activities within the reorganized time;
• The interaction between reorganized teacher and student time; and
• The enabling conditions for using the reorganized time well.

We found that the types of collaborative practices in place at these schools engaged educators with different areas of expertise to share decisions and responsibilities towards a commonly held vision or outcome. As teachers learned with and from each other through collaborative relationships, they strengthened their sense of collective responsibility for student learning."
