Full Day Institute

Title Leading a Learning-Focused School
Programme School Leaders' Retreat
Days Offered October 15th and 16th (Repeated)
Description Leading a school is a complex business. In that complexity, the core business of learning can get lost. This workshop aims to bring simplicity and common-sense to bear on creating a coherent approach to leading a school, which begins with defining learning, and then organizes all school systems around that definition. The workshop is designed as an active conversation among practitioners, conducted in a spirit of honesty and good humour, and provides participants not only with ideas on the theories of learning and leadership, but also with a whole set of practical tools, from job descriptions to protocols and templates to help make learning happen. There are some good African bird photos too!
Objectives TBA
Target Audience School Administrators and Leaders, School Board Members
Conference Material Session materials and handouts to be provided.

Title Mapping the Common Ground
Programme Educators' Conference
Day Offered October 17th, 2011
Description Despite years of ‘international education’ there currently exists no continuous, coherent, international curriculum that is clear, simple, accessible. This workshop provides information on a project that addresses this gap. The Common Ground Curriculum begins with a definition of learning and then translates this into a framework that maps the ‘what, how, and whether’ of learning, providing students, and teachers, with practical toolkits for success. It is the work of a growing group of schools, The Common Ground Collaborative, that is, in itself an innovation: a global network  of practitioners talking to practitioners, developing core learning of high quality, but leaving much decision-making where it belongs, with the school itself.
Objectives TBA
Target Audience School Administrators and Leaders, School Board Members
