  • Learning and Teaching

    The Learning and Teaching Team leads and supports schools to promote expert teacher practice. The team aims to build teacher capacity to address student variability through targeted teaching, ensuring an accelerated rate of progress for every student. 

    The work of the Learning and Teaching team is aligned to the Learning and Teaching Cycle. The team works with schools to ensure teachers have a deep understanding of: 

    • Planning: What students need to learn as set out in the Victorian Curriculum  
    • Teaching: Targeted teaching to cater for student variability 
    • Assessing: Knowing where each student is at in their learning 
    • Reflecting/reviewing: How well was the curriculum taught? How well did the students learn? 

    The team endeavours to develop expert subject content knowledge of the Victorian Curriculum.  In addition, the team’s goal is to deepen teacher understanding of the developmental steps of how students learn as set out in the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority Learning Progressions in Literacy and Numeracy.  

    In the team’s work with schools the team promotes expert teacher practice through the implementation of evidence based teaching strategies. The team fosters collective efficacy within and across Diocesan schools and delivers differentiated service provision to individual schools.
