School & curriculum leadership 6

Denise Lofts, Ulladulla High School

If you don't feed the teachers they eat the students: reimagining learning

Wednesday 17 June 2020 7-8pm AEST

Presenter bio

This south coast principal will explore how leaders can leverage real change in a regional context to enliven and engage teachers and students to reimagine learning.

The webinar will outline the leadership journey to transform learning for teachers and students resulting in empowered, authentic, contextual and collaborative learning experiences for all. What steps it takes to 'lead change' to align purpose, learning focus and student outcomes through the strategic use of learning theories, professional learning structures and reimagined classrooms. The learning will provide critical reflection for school leaders to pilot learning structures, use communities of professional practice to evaluate effectively, to successfully scale up learning theories and structures across large cohorts of students to ultimately improve engagement and belonging.
