An approach based on trust and creating the right conditions and support is an essential element in developing a culture of learning. Creating just the right conditions not only supports everybody's learning, but also fosters developments in thinking and helps staff practice both individually and collectively.
It is important that we encourage and nurture our colleagues to take pride in their own and each other's capacity to learn and to treat this as an integral part of our campus's professional identity.
The focus of our passionate conversations and collaborative work is firmly based on your children's learning as well as questions relating to curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment.
As such, the Lincoln Park team's developing a strategy to prioritize time and resources to allow our staff to work together, share ideas, and - again - learn from each other. It is essential that staff do not feel isolated or alone. In discussions and encounters like these, staff help each other reflect.
