Quality education requires teachers to not only pay attention to achieving certain outcomes but also to the processes and practices involved. This education is an interaction between meaning-making human beings instead of being an input-processing-outcome model where placing the ‘right’ inputs will generate the desired outcomes.
Traditional workshops and conferences used for the professional development of teachers tend to reinforce the input-processing-output model.
Schools that seek holistic formation of students requires empowering teachers with more meaningful professional learning experiences – opportunities to interact within context, in a continual manner that is appropriate for the needs of the individual educator and school as a whole. Transforming Together seeks to bridge from the current educational culture towards a more collaborative culture. This approach supports the growth of colleagues as well as students by sharing talents, ideas and strategies within a trusting community.
