Summary: In this paper, we suggest an effective model for teachers’ professional development ‒ Learning Study. A Learning Study combines students’ and teachers’ learning. Through a Learning Study, teachers improve their teaching by learning how their students learn. In a Learning Study, a group of teachers explore the relationship between teaching and learning with the aim to improve students’ learning in a cyclic process of planning and revising their lessons. An example of a Learning Study about teaching fractions in Primary 4 in a Hong Kong school is given.
