Collaborative approaches to professional development: Learning the lessons of lockdown (Code: C0816)

An unexpected consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the realisation of the many benefits of a skilful use of technology to enrich online learning. Additionally, teachers have had a unique opportunity to spend time collaborating and reflecting with colleagues, sharing practice and developing new skills to meet these new challenges.

Who is this for?

Teachers, trainers and managers in the Further Education and Training sector.

Training aim

To explore how teachers can continue to harness the powers of collaborative professional development approaches (JPD) to improve their on-line teaching and learning skills.  

This interactive webinar builds on the recent 'Enhance your powers of critical reflection' session and we will explore some practical strategies that will enable teachers to prioritise this collaborative way of working as FE institutions re-open in September.

Tricia Odell will be joined by Joyce Chen, who has been using Joint Practice Development (JPD) to engage vocational teachers in JPD in her role as Learning and Quality Practitioner at the College of West Anglia.


You will have the knowledge and confidence to:

  • Suggest how teachers/trainers are currently working with peers to develop their online practice. 
  • Outline some practical strategies for continuing to work collaboratively with peers to improve online teaching and learning skills.
  • Identify next steps for professional learning and development


60 minutes. (A recording will be posted after the session to support the sector post-event.)
