Abstract: This working paper builds on existing work on teacher professional learning communities (PLCs) in both local and international contexts, to examine how collaborative learning can enrich teacher professional development for the actualization of teacher-led professionalism. It also aims to bring together the multiple views and lenses of state, local and international academia, and practitioners into an integrated strategy for the research on PLCs in Singapore schools. In doing so, the paper aspires, through research, to contribute to efforts for reconfiguring teacher professionalism, buttressed by teacher-led professional learning efforts. In response to these aspirations, we propose a 5-year research trajectory for actualizing teacher-led professionalism through mentoring collaborative reflection among teachers in PLCs.
