What is the teaching and learning cycle?
Embedded in all DET syllabus documents is an understanding that explicit and systematic teaching and learning will best occur when teachers follow the process articulated by the teaching and learning cycle.
The teaching and learning cycle represents the four stages that occur in the design and delivery of classroom tasks that incorporate an outcomes-based approach. The cycle has no start or end point, with each step informing the next. It is the process of gathering data and reflection that dictates where in the cycle you need to be operating.
