Event description


Workshop Descriptor:

Inquiry-centered leadership allows school leaders to explore the role of ongoing improvement in their school, while also creating the conditions that will support sustainable reform. Through an emphasis on investigation, collaboration and reflection, inquiry-centered leaders develop their own skills and understandings, while building effective teacher teams and the broader capacity of their schools to adapt to new challenges. The key competencies for inquiry-centered leaders include creativity, mindfulness, empathy, curiosity, and systems thinking.

This interactive workshop supports aspiring leaders, middle managers and school administrators to develop powerful approaches to leadership at all levels of the school. Through examining current theory and real-world case studies, participants will identify strategies and approaches that impact most positively on student outcomes. Importantly, the workshop will help leaders develop their ability to lead others in rich collaboration that is deeply focused on issues and areas of strategic interest related to curriculum, assessment, classroom practice and student learning. A central focus will be on the practical application of research-based tools, strategies and approaches to the real- life challenges being experienced by participants in their own schools.

Participants will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of reflective practice, including creative approaches to self-development

  • Learn practical approaches for developing and sustaining effective collaboration within teacher 

  • Understand the potential of inquiry and action learning to drive sustainable innovation and improvement

  • Improve their ability to lead and manage change, including the development of strategies for effective communication and problem solving
