12:00 | Session 2: WHAT: Developing your critical lens on powerful learning
In this session, we will look at how educational leaders can establish what is and what isn’t working in their school. Claire will share the process she used when starting at Albany Senior High School mid-2018 to ready the school for change in 2019. Claire developed a template for observing “powerful learning” in each parts of the school curriculum. Observations were shared and workshopped with staff. This was then translated into a series of observations and opportunities. This will be followed by an opportunity for educational leaders to develop their own template for observing “powerful learning” in their school context.

In this session, we will look at how the design thinking framework can be used to develop leadership inquiries to enable your leadership to lead the change needed. Workshop participants will undertake a design thinking challenge to address a perceived need in their school and context.
