Twilight seminar: Future Ready Leadership (presented by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach)
Wed 10th Aug 2016, 5:00pm – 6:30pm, Bastow Institute, North Melbourne
Future Ready leaders know how to navigate the multifaceted challenges behind designing, planning, and implementation of a vision toward reimagining the role of technology in education.
As the people of the world are becoming increasingly connected, the nature, use, ownership, and purpose of knowledge are changing in profound ways. Our goal as educational leaders is to leverage these connections and changes as powerful means to improve teaching and learning in our schools.
In this twilight seminar Sheryl will unpack the four domains that all Future Ready leaders need in today’s learning landscape:
- collaborative leadership
- personalised student learning
- robust infrastructure
- personalised professional learning.
This seminar will be presented by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach.
Twilight seminar: From Old School to Bold School (presented by Will Richardson)
Thurs 18th Aug 2016, 5:00pm – 6:30pm, Bastow Institute, North Melbourne
Schools around the world are beginning the shift to modern ways of thinking about learning in globally connected classrooms. As traditional structures fade in their effectiveness and relevance, a different approach to classroom practice is emerging, one built on deeply held beliefs about learning as seen through the powerful new contexts on technology, work, literacy, and global changes. Doing school “better” is no longer enough. Now, we are doing school fundamentally differently.
Based on decades of observation and research, international guest speaker Will Richardson will discuss a framework for change that is now being employed to fundamentally reframe both vision and practice to more fully meet the needs of contemporary learners.
This seminar will be presented by Will Richardson.
