Masters in Educational Practice: Professional learning


Collaborative working



Key points from this section include the following.

  • Working in a collaborative way can confer many advantages for both practitioners and learners. This can include ‘communities of practice’ within institutions, ‘professional learning communities’ that span many institutions, and ‘professional learning networks’ that can extend across the whole world.
  • A mentoring relationship can provide considerable support to practitioners, particularly those in the early stages of their careers, and mentors gain skills as well as mentees.
  • Coaching has an important role to play in adding to the skill-set of practitioners, and coaching skills are useful for aspiring educational leaders.
