Have you ever considered how important it is for learning environments to have leaders who plan effective learning interventions?
Good school leaders recognize that they play a key role in the design of professional learning in their schools. But research has shown that the most effective school leaders actually participate in Professional Development activities. When leaders demonstrate a willingness to lead by example, and be an engaged participant rather than an observer, the whole school feels the impact.
During this course, we will explore together the importance of leaders being at the heart of Professional Learning in their schools as Learners. We will recognize the potential impact on learning, which is measurably increased when Leaders are Learners, in the whole school.
We will carry out a collaborative inquiry and share research, case studies, as well as real experiences of what happens when school leaders take an active part in Professional Learning, rather than just assigning it to their teachers.
Issues including leadership skills and styles, the impact of professional learning on the whole school (especially on students), and planning for impactful learning interventions will be unpacked and evaluated.
Last but not least, participants will identify application opportunities for themselves and their own schools. They will plan for effective, equitable, and differentiated Professional Learning activities, based on the whole staff and students’ actual needs.
Participants in this course will leave with a set of specific goals, and a professional learning programme that they will facilitate at their school site. They will also take away a BIO (biography) statement of themselves as “Leaders Who Learn”, to describe their own leadership style, leadership skills, and leadership responsibilities.
