Lesson Study

The Teacher Development Trust Network is a collaborative partnership of schools and colleges committed to innovation and improvement in staff professional development. By engaging in existing evidence to develop world-class practitioner research, our members work together to improve, share and promote highly effective, evidence-based practice across the network and beyond.

Membership is a powerful tool for sustainable, staff-led improvement. Our Network includes schools and colleges with world-leading reputations for outstanding professional development as well as schools and colleges that are just at the start of their journey – it is a network that can support you no matter what your level of experience.

At the heart of the TDT Network is the idea that the best professional development occurs when teachers collaboratively plan lessons and observe and reflect on the effect of the teaching activities on learners. For this reason, all members of the Network are supported to implement Lesson Study, a system of sustained collaborative teacher enquiry.
