Abstract: Lesson study is a model of professional development which supports teacher learning through collaboration. Lesson study consists of a cycle of phases, where a group of teachers work together to plan, conduct, observe and reflect on a research lesson. Through these phases, teachers share their knowledge and experience and have opportunity to collaboratively identify, trial and reflect on new practices. By participating in lesson study, teachers become researchers of their own practice through their investigation of innovative pedagogical approaches, with careful consideration of pupil learning. Teachers who have participated in lesson study have noted positive changes in their classroom practices and in their collaborations with colleagues. Research has also indicated that participation in lesson study has the potential to positively impact pupil learning, develop teacher knowledge and build teacher community (Lewis & Perry, 2017; Ni Shuilleabhain & Seery, 2017; Lieberman, 2009).
