Management to Leadership – An Introduction to Effective Instructional Middle Leadership
Management to Leadership – An introduction to effective instructional middle leadership in secondary schools, with Robyn Headifen, Jenny MacDonald
Participants will be introduced to a framework to evaluate key aspects of practice and support middle leader inquiry. The framework was developed from Leading from the Middle: educational leadership for middle and senior leaders (2012) and other key policy documents such as Ka Hikitia, the Pasifika Education Plan and the School Leadership Best Evidence Synthesis.
Using the framework participants can evaluate their current practice as an instructional leader. By identifying strengths and areas for development, leaders can then plan for next steps to improving leadership practices that positively impact on both teacher practice and student outcomes.
Using data to track student progress, learning program design, embedding teaching as inquiry, classroom teaching practice, assessment practice, leading teachers and working collaboratively with other middle leaders are all aspects that will all be addressed.
