The New Type of PLC - a CCOL


"There are many different professional development models that are currently referred to as professional learning communities. Initiating our project we knew that many of the teachers we would be working with would have prior experiences both positive and negative with PLCs. Consequently, we chose to define the work we do with teachers outside of the project Saturday workshops and summer institutes as Collaborative Community of Learners (CCOLs). By choosing the name CCOL, we placed the heaviest emphasis on the notion of being learners. Building and supporting learners is the emphasis of our MSP including the project leaders, the CCOL facilitators, the participating teachers, the school administrators, the parents and school board members, and most importantly the students."
