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.
