Quality Teaching Rounds Model

Amongst the many professional learning programs that our teaching staff undertake is the whole school initiative known as Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR). This program is unique in that all Lauriston staff across Junior School, Senior School and Howqua are involved. Developed in 2003 by Associate Professor James Ludwig and Laureate Professor Jenny Gore from the University of Newcastle, its primary focus is on improving the quality of the classroom teaching. It has been the subject of multiple rigorous research studies over the past 20 years and has been shown to improve the outcomes for students in the classrooms by encouraging teachers to focus on 18 different elements in each of their classes.

Many of our Lauriston teaching staff have completed the extensive training offered by the University of Newcastle to ensure that they understand these elements, and how to effectively focus on them in the classroom. As educators, we find that these concepts tie in with much of the already established classroom practice - the model clearly articulates what we believe to be excellence in classroom teaching and provides us with a rigorous teaching framework.

“I do believe that QTR remains one of the most powerful forms of professional learning. It is impossible to watch a colleague teach and not to learn.”
Lindy Grahn, Assistant Principal - Learning and Innovation
