Quality Teaching Rounds: Enrich student learning with a funded professional development opportunity in 2022
Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR), an approach to professional development that has been shown to improve student achievement in maths by up to 25%, will be available to Victorian government secondary schools in 2022 as part of a fully funded research study.
QTR is a pedagogy focused approach to professional development that has been shown to significantly improve teaching quality, teacher morale and student outcomes.
The University of Newcastle, in partnership with the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and the Victorian Department of Education and Training, are seeking Victorian secondary schools to participate in a study looking at the impact of QTR on student achievement in 2022.
Schools that sign up to this opportunity will receive complimentary training in QTR and $7,000 in funding to support teacher release for four teachers to undertake four days of in-school Rounds during Term 2, 2022. Further information about this exciting opportunity is available here. To take part, a school will require four interested teachers willing to be involved, including at least one Year 8 maths teacher and one Year 8 English teacher.
QTR has already been successfully implemented in more than 1,000 schools across NSW. Cessnock High School Principal, Peter Riley, shares his thoughts about QTR is this brief video.
