AISSA Leadership Program 2016
Over the past two years the AISSA has been working intensively with Principals on school improvement, the ultimate goal being to improve outcomes for students. Our work has enabled us to engage with the latest thinking and research and also to work alongside our schools as they are challenged and excited by doing things better.
This work has led us to develop an AISSA High Impact School Improvement Tool which will be launched on Wednesday 16 March. The tool has been designed to support leaders in undertaking targeted, explicit and effective school improvement processes which make a difference to student learning.
2016 will bring two exciting opportunities for school leaders to work alongside world renowned experts, Dr Yong Zhao and Professor Ron Ritchhart to take on these challenges. Dr Zhao is an international scholar, author, and speaker whose work focuses on the implications of globalization on education. He currently serves as the Presidential Chair and Director of the Institute for Global and Online Education in the College of Education, University of Oregon.
The 2016 leadership series also comprises workshop programs for recently appointed leaders and a legal series which addresses some of the legislative requirements and legal challenges facing schools. For those Principals interested in developing as leaders of learning with a focus on either literacy or numeracy the two day workshop program outlined on page 8 of the 'Leadership Program 2016 booklet' is recommended.
