Abstract

This paper describes our experience in working with teachers to think about how to make practice more inquiry-based: one in which we as the academics were thinking in terms of collaboration while the teachers were expecting delivery of a professional development module. Partly, this is the story of the balance found between those expectations through underpinning the PISCES module. Partly, it is an attempt to conceptualise the form of professional learning that evolved.
