Commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation, the East of England’s Professional Exchange Network supports teaching practitioners to reflect on their practice; share, collaborate and develop solutions. The Network acts as regional hub for groups of practitioners to formally collaborate 3-4 times per academic year.
Our aim is to develop a sustainable practitioner-focused community for learning, sharing and improving teaching practice through the Network. This will enable practitioners from a range of education and training providers across the East of England to collaborate on small-scale action research with the sharing of practice through:
1. identifying what each individual practitioner wishes to develop, learn or improve upon;
2. collaborating with others to trial different methods;
3. working together to evaluate findings;
4. sharing learning and ideas with others through progress reports.
