Title:

Scaling-up towards 2021: Leading Collaborative Practices and Developing Middle Leadership Capabilities

Part One: Taking Stock: What needs to be ‘banked’ from 2020?

This workshop is the first of two, connected to reviewing and planning for 2021. The recent past and the present becomes institutional memory in 2021, so what will you register in your ‘memory bank’ now for 2021? What significant learnings related to leading collaborative practices and developing middle leadership capabilities in your school need to be processed and ‘banked’ for 2021? This includes what you have observed in relation to practices, as well as the sub-cultures that have been (re)formed during 2020. Sub-cultures are associated with espoused values, values-in-use, beliefs, and (shared) assumptions. This workshop will focus on what practices and sub-culture associations you hope to see more and less of? Why? As we reflect and discuss these hopes, you will be encouraged to note any implications for ASLs, WSLs, other middle leaders and your Kāhui Ako.

Facilitators:

Howard Youngs, Maggie Ogram

Title:

Scaling-up towards 2021: Leading Collaborative Practices and Developing Middle Leadership Capabilities

Part Two: Sowing bespoke ‘Gardens of Practice’ for 2021

This second workshop builds on the review process of the first one and brings planning for 2021 to the fore. In addition to what needs to be ‘banked’ from 2020, continued and enhanced, what new practices and sub-culture associations are needed in your school and Kāhui Ako in 2021? To intentionally grow sustainability, we need to tend to what is beneath, in other words those aspects associated with sub-cultures. So, how will the 2021 seeds of change grow in the 2020 soil of your assumptions and patterns of past practice? What are some intentional steps you can plan to take as a school and in your Kāhui Ako? During this workshop time will be given to discuss and plan, first in your school groupings and then across school groupings. We hope the latter will provide opportunity for ASLs, WSLs, and other middle leaders to facilitate this opportunity of 2021 direction forming.

Facilitators:

Maggie Ogram, Dr Howard Youngs
