Professional Learning Framework for Teachers and Leaders with OECD

What is the OECD PLCCT Framework

This project aims to enhance teacher training programmes on creative and critical thinking. Together, GIoCT and the OECD have created a tailor-made programme that should be accessible and effective for educators around the world.

As the international coordinator, GIoCT’s role includes but is not limited to translating the framework when necessary; assisting in the adaptations of the localised programme and ensuring the programme is appropriate for the relevant country/region’s cultural and educational context; coordinating the implementation and feedback of the programme on the field; coordinate the revision of localised training programme(s) as appropriate; and develop public guidelines for the adaptation and implementation of the OECD training programmes by interested jurisdictions/parties.

The professional learning framework for fostering and assessing creativity and critical thinking, bringing together learnings from different countries and different curricula development cultures, have 10 modules that form the foundation of the framework’s implementation, both for creativity and critical thinking. These modules are flexible, adaptable and split into the following sections:

Introduction- concepts (2)
Planning and learning design (2)
Institution-wide (1)
Teaching and delivery (2)
Assessment (2)
System-wide (1)

With the resources and information available already on the CERI app (www.oecdcericct.com) teachers and students alike will now have access to the materials that will enable and inspire creative classrooms across the world. Stay tuned for upcoming updates in the coming months.

Purpose and Areas
of Cooperation

The collaboration aims to enhance international education by fostering the development of creative and critical thinking within the acquisition of knowledge. This initiative seeks to render the significance of this agenda not only visible but also sustainable. Additionally, it endeavors to explore diverse methodologies for promoting the skills of creative and critical thinking within the educational sphere.

Forms of
Cooperation

The modes of collaboration encompass a spectrum of activities, including but not limited to, joint research initiatives, the organization of joint events and workshops, the exchange of informational resources, and the active involvement of experts in meetings and conferences.

Phase 1

Framework Adaptation

The collaboration aims to enhance international education by fostering the development of creative and critical thinking within the acquisition of knowledge. This initiative seeks to render the significance of this agenda not only visible but also sustainable. Additionally, it endeavors to explore diverse methodologies for promoting the skills of creative and critical thinking within the educational sphere.

Phase 2

Material Development

GIoCT is tasked with creating detailed support materials for instructors, teacher educators, and teachers undergoing training. This includes a revised general teacher training framework and localized in-person programs, along with materials adapted to align with each country’s cultural and educational context.

Phase 3

Pilot Training Program

The collaboration advances to the implementation of a pilot training program, applying the adapted OECD framework and support materials. This involves enrolling participants from a couple of countries, with the OECD promoting participation within its network.

Phase 4

Analysis and Revision

Following the pilot program, both parties engage in a comprehensive review process. The OECD analyzes quantitative data from assessments, while GIoCT conducts qualitative focus groups. These insights inform the revision of the in-person framework and support materials to enhance their effectiveness.

Phase 5

Finalization and Publication

OECD finalizing and publishing a revised framework, incorporating lessons learned from previous phases. Concurrently, GIoCT and the OECD develop public guidelines to assist interested jurisdictions in adapting and implementing the revised framework to their local contexts.
