This practice-based paper examines shared teaching and learning to widen perspectives and improve teaching and learning. It is based on real work in real classrooms with teachers and students. This collaborative shared teaching and learning enabled staff and students alike to expand their understandings and skills. The “village” applied to classroom settings creates a sense of connectedness that enhances teaching and learning for both teachers and students since their contributions are valued and utilised.
