Event description


Workshop Descriptor:

If they ever existed, gone are the days when leaders could exercise control over people and ideas. Understood as socially constructed and deeply contextual, leadership is about the exercise of ethical influence in a world of ambiguity and complexity. Contemporary schools require leaders adept in human interaction and in ideas generation, who nurture and draw on the talents and skills of others to create new knowledge and design new solutions. Notions of “generative” leadership are fundamental to Pam’s latest work Action and Reflection Tools for Busy School Leaders. Join Pam to explore ways to reflect on your leadership practice and to reimagine the future of school leadership more broadly.

What the audience will gain as a consequence of attending the workshop (outcomes of the workshop)

Participants will:

  • Understand different conceptions of leadership

  • Develop insights into personal leadership practice

  • Have ways to work with teams and the wider community

  • Understand the nature of innovation

  • Be provided with some tools for use in leadership practice

  • Understand leaders’ intended and unintended impact

  • Develop strategies for challenging situations

  • Develop a working theory of action to guide future practice

Audience: Anyone interested in educational leadership

Workshop Presenter Biography:

Professor Pam Ryan is an educator with extensive leadership experience in both public and private sectors, in Australia and internationally. Currently Pam is Industry Professor (Learning and Education) at the University of Technology Sydney and also provides education consultancy to the social research and innovation team at Incept Labs. From 2010-2014 Pam was Director of Education for a Hong Kong-based foundation of 21 international schools, prior to which she spent 7 years as a School Education Director in the NSW government system and 10 years as a secondary school principal. Interests in educational leadership, school transformation, strategic planning and creative problem-solving have characterised Pam’s work.

Pam has published three books on school leadership: Leadership in Education: Learning from Experience (Halstead Press, 2015); Wise Heads Wise Hearts (ACER Press, 2016), and Action and Reflection Tools for Busy School Leaders (ACER, 2017). The subject of Pam’s current research is the nature leadership dysfunction, how it impacts on individuals and schools and what it can tell us about thinking differently about leadership.
