This strand is for experienced AVID Elective and Content teachers in schools that have been implementing AVID for three years or more. It is particularly useful for those schools offering AVID in years 11 and 12. It explores various strategies to build complexity and rigour in to the tutorial process both in the AVID Elective classes and in content classes school wide. Tutorials transition to collaborative study groups that are student-centred and student-led setting up practices they can replicate to solve complex problems at university or in the workplace. The strand focuses on continuous improvement of AVID classes through advanced implementation of WICOR methodologies and instructional practices with greater depth and fidelity school wide that support all students. The strand builds the skills and capacity of teacher leadership for those wanting to step up and take a lead in building AVID school wide.
