The teacher, who is the professional learning co-ordinator at his school, describes how professional learning has been determined and prioritised.  Staff development is based on an analysis of student learning and welfare needs as well as on the curriculum priorities of the school’s four-year strategic plan. In-school professional learning is consequently delivered through a range of mechanisms, including whole-school training, professional learning teams, and peer tutoring. The teacher describes how information and communication technology (ICT) acts as an enabler for professional learning, through the sharing of resources by teachers, which can be viewed on interactive whiteboards in classrooms.
