According to Robinson (2009), “Taking part in collaborative enquiries into improving teaching and learning is the single most impactful action a school leader can take to improve educational outcomes for pupils.”
Lesson Study is one way of achieving this. It is a planned programme of teacher enquiry which originated in Japan. It enables teachers to work collaboratively in order to explore and improve their own practice.
However, it requires a strong commitment from staff and is time-consuming. As such, school leaders must be serious about setting time aside for teachers to meet, observe each other, and give feedback. This might involve getting cover for some lessons.
