Conditions for learning: Building and sharing teacher professional knowledge

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


This chapter discusses the learning conditions that enable teachers to work together and deepen the understanding of their professional practice. As evident in this book, the teachers at St Joseph’s display a wide range of professional knowledge and expertise, and they are not only purposeful in their teaching but are able to clearly articulate what they value in terms of quality learning. Yet the professional knowledge of practice that teachers share in each of these chapters was once deeply embedded within their everyday teaching; it was tacit knowledge.
