Carol Jarrett uses the teaching as inquiry approach in her department to investigate what she labels “problems of practice”. Carol shares her experiences in the classroom with colleagues, encouraging an environment where teachers feel safe to talk about their practice. They reframe the conversation using the teaching as inquiry tool – describe the problem, identify possible solutions, make a change, evaluate.

Carol recognises that teachers need to take ownership of the process if the change is to be successful. She says it is important for participants to understand the change – what it is and why it is being prioritised.
