During two days, more than 100 teachers from technical-professional high schools in the regions of Antofagasta to Magallanes participated in the Learning Sessions of the Educational Networks for the Improvement of Learning (REMA), promoted by the Luksic Foundation through MueveTP.
In this instance, teachers were able to reflect and put into practice the tools acquired during their two years of participation in REMA, which are focused on strengthening the quality of interactions within the classroom in its socio-emotional, pedagogical and organizational dimension; promote support practices based on observation and formative feedback, and install within the schools a methodology for continuous improvement, based on collaborative and networked work.
The sessions also included the participation of the UC Center for Educational Transformation team, who presented the CLASS tool, whose objective is to observe the interactions between teachers and students in the classroom, and then provide feedback on the strengths and opportunities for teachers.
“As a team, we are aware that improvements in student learning start with the teachers, so we are happy to be able to support them with tools that allow them to perform their work effectively,” said Nancy Pizarro, REMA coordinator.
With this type of initiative, the Education area of the Luksic Foundation seeks to promote the continuity of studies of students in secondary technical-professional education and to generate a transversal network of collaboration between high schools, which allows them to share learning and seek solutions to common challenges.
