Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership

Professional learning edition

It can be tricky finding time for your own professional learning in the busy world of teaching and learning. The good news is that PL can take many forms and doesn't have to be a workshop or conference. In fact, PL that is job-embedded, sustained and related to your context is likely to have more impact.

So in this April edition of AITSL Mail, we’ll give you the rundown on some evidence-backed ways to supercharge your PL in 2021.

We are also sharing our leadership scenarios for school leaders, and the My Induction app for new teachers in 2021.
