Hargreaves, Fullan, Timperley, Dana, OECD...show that schools have to give the professionality back to the teachers. This project aims that the teacher becomes again the true profession who knows what evidence means in education and who reflects on his practice, based on evidence.Once the teacher has found answers on his questions of practice, he/she can share his practice with colleagues.

A team of school leaders and teachers will participate jointly on the activities. Research on effective professional learning has shown that this is the most effective way of professional learning (mixed teams).During the international learning, the teams will reflect on what they learn. They will refine their frame of thinking and develop action plans for their local school. Later on, the teams share what they learned in their school and in the consortium. Results:Schools will develop a sustainable policy on evidence based teaching and learning and on how they can develop effective professional learning communities. The consortiummembers will develop a document that they can use to support other schools in their working on more evidence based teaching and learning and in building real professional learning communities.
