Learning and Teaching Protocols
Taking into consideration the College’s 2015–2018 Strategic Plan Learning and Teaching objective: To improve student learning outcomes within an environment designed to support contemporary learning and teaching practices, a working group was established in the second half of 2017 to improve learning and teaching across the whole College as a strategic priority.
In the midst of aiming to achieve our College Mission: To be an outstanding school striving for excellence and innovative academic achievement in a supportive community to best prepare young men for our world; the working group developed the Learning and Teaching Protocols.
The protocols acknowledge the shifting roles of student and teacher in the 21st century classroom and the increasingly dynamic global context in which our students live. They recognise the importance of providing an innovative and inclusive education in the Lasallian tradition that allows each learner, student and staff, to experience success and to strive for personal excellence in all endeavours. With all members of the De La Salle College community; students, staff and parents, embracing and committing to the Learning and Teaching Protocols, students will mature as empowered learners who are active, independent and motivated participants in the learning process.
The Learning and Teaching Protocols work to establish consistency of expectation for the student, teacher and parent regarding the learning environment. They call upon students and teachers to set their respective expectations high. Finally, the protocols aim to promote engagement within the learning environment, by defining and emphasising the shared responsibilities of both students and teachers.
