Lean Into Co-Teaching

Co-Teaching is a space in which an educational ecosystem emerges. It creates an environment in which the sharing of knowledge and various physical as well mental practices can occur in an open-minded way and through constant exchange. Led by two or more teachers, co-teaching aims to create a space where the channels of communication are always kept open. By allowing spontaneity, adaptation, and improvisation into the space of knowledge transmission, co-teaching challenges more traditional educational approaches that are often built on a one-way flow of rehearsed knowledge. These sessions are half-structured and half-improvised choreographic situations in which teachers invite students to understand and share the teaching/learning process as a common cause. This format was developed by the members of the NDA network and other invited guests. 

Co-teaching is learning together 
Co-teaching is a place of shared practice 
Co-teaching is a place of surprises 
Co-teaching is trustful cooperation 
Co-teaching is a challenge
