At different times of the year, VIS offers professional learning opportunities for educators and adult members of VIS community.
The VIS process is a professional growth model. It guides teachers in their professional
practice and supports quality learning opportunities for all students. Teachers and school leaders use the model for reflection and analysis of current teaching practice as well as to guide the planning and redesign of activities, lessons and units of work. The research-based philosophical underpinnings of the VIS Growing Professionallymanual are intended to align with the VIS Core (Vision, Mission, Values).
