Abstract: Design-based professional learning and collaborative inquiry have mobilized shared instructional leadership to advance pedagogical practices that support the success of all students in Canadian Rockies Public Schools through the NEIL initiative. We report on current year focus on reciprocal learning cycles. Leaders support teacher learning through reflective questioning based on classroom evidence. They also enhance their leadership practice by (a) deepening their understanding of specific research informed teaching through collective consideration of the same classroom evidence and through (b) reflective questioning from leadership peers, based on their interactions with the teachers in pre and post visit conversations.
