Theoretical Background of Teacher Collaboration


This section presents various forms of cooperative teaching. The goal is to highlight the potential benefits of direct collaboration among educators, as well as the challenges associated with it.

Lesson Studies

Many teachers find visits from colleagues or superiors during lessons often uncomfortable. However, collegial feedback can be a valuable tool for personal and professional development. Lesson Studies provide a constructive framework for this: In this approach, a group of teachers collaboratively develops a lesson unit and visits each other during implementation to provide constructive feedback on an equal footing. This process allows teachers to learn from each other, reflect on and improve their teaching methods without evaluating each other's abilities as educators.

Open Schooling

Open Schooling is an innovative concept that connects school education with the community and the real world. It offers an opportunity for students, teachers, and external partners (such as companies and associations) to work together on real projects and challenges. This approach is also suitable for more complex topics in areas such as health, technology, and sustainability.

Team Teaching

Team Teaching is a cooperative teaching method in which two or more teachers jointly plan, teach, and take responsibility for the learning progress of a class or group of students. This method is used in various school areas to reduce the burden during teaching for individual teachers, increase the effectiveness of teaching, and, if necessary, integrate expertise from various disciplines into a common teaching unit.
