Medical rounds are a staple in teaching hospitals. Could a similar model enhance the professional learning of teachers? Tom Del Prete, author of Teacher Rounds: A Guide to Collaborative Learning In and From Practice, joins us to explain what teacher rounds are and discuss the benefits they can provide to support collaborative teacher learning as a reflective and inquiring process that enables the participants to better understand and develop their own teaching practice in an actual classroom.
