Abstract:The aim of this systematic review is whether collective learning is an effective learning instrument and the review explores which conditions are necessary to stimulate and maintain collective learning. It is based on the information that the educational quality in Suriname is decreasing and a training centre (CENASU) is build to train teachers what should lead to an increase of educational quality. Terms concerning collective learning and teachers were selected to search for articles in the chosen databases. The databases used in this study are ERIC, PsysINFO, Scopus and Web of Science. After selecting articles, based on the inclusion criteria, 48 articles were remaining. Out of these 48 articles 37 articles were eventually used in the systematic review. The systematic review shows that there are two effects of collective learning. They are improving teacher practices and improve student achievements. Next, seven main conditions have been discovered to stimulate and help to maintain collective learning. These conditions are attitude/ commitment/ involvement, support, shared vision/ goals, trust, leadership, time and context/ culture and surroundings. Next an exploration method is used to use experiences from the researcher to fill the gap between science and society. The exploration method used the conditions for research. The exploration method consisted of visiting schools, have conversations with teachers, conversation with the board of CENASU and PROGRESS/VVOB, attend training and a congress and develop trainings. After the research, systematic review and exploration method, some conclusions and recommendations are given. CENASU should take the seven conditions in mind when developing training for teachers and principals in Suriname to improve the educational quality. They are proven to be an effective instrument for improving teacher’s quality. Therefore, CENASU and schools should develop informal collective learning activities, like communities of practices and peer partnerships, and they should mirror these activities to the conditions that will improve the Suriname education.
