About the webisode
Seaford K-7 School tells the story of one site's journey in developing a performance and development culture. The Principal, Lisa Bryant, explains how the three key elements of collaboration, using documentation effectively and teacher self-reflection, supported by a performance conversation framework, enable the school to achieve better outcomes for students and a robust, supportive learning culture among the staff.
Teachers involved in a classroom observation process and embedding the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers in their practice and professional dialogue are depicted as a positive example of the DECD performance and development cycle in action.
We encourage you to apply the concepts from this webisode to your own context.
- What aspects of the Seaford K-7 model might work in your school or site?
- What are the responsibilities of teachers and leaders (or employees and managers) in contributing to the development of a performance and development culture?
- How do educators in your site engage with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers?
- Or, for non-educational settings: How do staff at your site engage in performance and development activities that are linked to their professional responsibilities?
