"I found the Leading Classroom Observation and Feedback PD to be both informative and practical. It offered not only the theoretical evidence to support classroom observation and feedback but also some guidelines on how to successfully introduce/support this process."
Jacquie Bogunovich, Associate Principal, Canningvale College, November 2019

"As a new and very inexperienced principal, this PL is the most useful I have attended. It has given me a framework to work in school improvement- how to get started, how to increase staff buy-in, how to build evidence to show what we are doing, and how to use a range of evidence to assess impact."
Jancy Whyte, Principal, Coorow Primary School, November 2019

"Some great take-aways from this course no matter your entry point. Useful templates to assess your own school, approaches to implementing classroom observation and powerful vignettes to demonstrate the impact of classroom observation."
