  9. “As I grew in my understanding of inquiry, unknowingly I was bringing some of my colleagues along with me. …We were no longer evaluating methods as good or bad but instead we were wondering, tweaking, applying, revising, sharing and wondering some more.”

  10. “Now that I have experienced the power of inquiry in working with my colleagues, I could never go back to my old ways.”

  11. Spirals of InquiryRoots in BC and New Zealand

  12. 2004 to 2010 Goal: to achieve sustainable improvement in schools’ literacy practices by supporting schools to engage in evidence-based inquiry at both the macro (school-wide) and micro (classroom) levels. Schools engaged with the project for two years.

  13. Focus on sustainability What happens when the project is over and the support dries up? Helen Timperley University of Auckland

  14. 2013 Coherence and Inquiry and Key Dimensions for Sustainability of Professional Learning Two key research findings

  15. If teachers applied what they had learned in systematic ways then this appeared to be a sufficient threshold to support outcomes for new cohorts of students that were similar to gains in student achievement while participating in the LPDP.

  16. Whereas, when schools engaged in an iterative inquiry, re-focusing on persistent issues of underachievement that still existed, investing in continued knowledge-building and establishing coherence of instructional practices across curriculum areas, they improved on their achievement gains over time.
