The Literacy Professional Development Project(LPDP) provides schools with an in-depth professional development programme that focuses on improving student learning and achievement in literacy through evidence-based practice. The project also has a focus on the professional learning that has an ongoing effect on student progress and achievement.
The Literacy Professional Development Project (LPDP), delivered by Learning Media on behalf of the MOE, is a national project that provides whole school professional development in literacy to primary and intermediate schools.
The project, which began in 2004, seeks to achieve sustainable improvement in schools' literacy practices by supporting schools to engage in evidence-based inquiry at both the macro (school-wide) and micro (classroom) levels. Schools engage with the project for two years. The current cohort of schools will complete the project in 2009.
The 2 reports describe the progress and achievement gains for the first two cohorts of schools in 2004/05, and 2006/07. The report on the third cohort of schools (2008/09) will be published when completed later in 2010.
Our team of experienced facilitators work in collaboration with the school leadership team as 'visiting leaders' to bring about improved instructional leadership, and teacher practices that lead to improved literacy outcomes for students.
The introduction paper and four research reports, Improving Learning for All: Learning from the Literacy Professional Development Project (LPDP), focus on student learning, teacher learning, facilitator learning, and learning across the whole education system. They contain ideas of relevance to teachers, school leaders, facilitators of professional learning, and policy makers across the education sector.
The content of these reports has been sourced from previously published research conducted by the researchers (Professor Helen Timperley and Associate Professor Judy Parr from the University of Auckland) working within LPDP, in partnership with project members.
The latest research report on Reading Recovery in New Zealand has been released and has been published online at Education Counts. In general, the results for 2008 were consistent with trends observed in previous year. Please click here to view the report.
