LSP202 Lesson Study Programme (5 Sessions)

This adapted version of the 8-Session programme aims to prepare teachers adequately for the adoption of lesson study as a professional development tool. This model prepares a learning team (from any subject area/discipline) for launching a lesson study project and for guiding its members through key stages of the lesson study cycle.
Session 1 : Overview of Lesson Study
Session 2 : Lesson Planning
Session 3*: Research Lesson
Session 4*: Post Lesson Discussion
Session 5 : Critical Reflection and Documentation

* Takes place on the same day
**For all sessions, schools are invited to encourage teachers who are not in the lesson study team to participate as gallery observers. This allows more teachers to benefit from the programme and prepares them to embark on future lesson study projects independently. Schools can also choose to customise the above sessions according to their teachers' professional development needs.

LSP203 Lesson Study Immersion Programme / Symposium

This is usually an overseas learning journey to explore broad issues of lesson study. Participants will be given many platforms to interact and learn from lesson study experts and peers from different organizations/countries. It will also give participants ample opportunities to visit real classrooms of different grades so that they can observe research lessons of various disciplines. There will also be post-trip support such as networking sessions and consultation opportunities with our lecturer(s). Schools which are interested to plan such overseas immersion trips (for example, for key personnel) can also request for customisation of the programme to suit their needs.
