CenterView: Teachers Leading the Way – Teacher-to-Teacher Professional Learning

By Pamela Fong, Joy Lewis


Teacher leaders are positioned to help other teachers reflect on their practice, try new pedagogical approaches, and work through instruction-related struggles — ultimately, leading to a change in instructional practice. In order to be effective in their new leadership roles, however, teacher leaders need support in developing leadership skills and require site-level conditions that foster teacher-to-teacher professional learning.

This CenterView issue looks at how teacher leaders are enacting teacher leader-led professional learning and what school administrators can do to support and sustain this impactful approach to improving teaching and learning.

Learn about:

  • Teacher leader-led professional learning designed to integrate face-to-face learning, virtual learning, and coaching
  • Vignettes of teacher leader-led professional learning in action
  • Site-based conditions that enable teacher leaders to facilitate effective professional learning
