Follow Up to Michael Fullan Halifax Workshop of Thursday, April 11, 2013

As a follow up to the workshop, Michael has suggested the following four discussion threads connected to our learning day in Halifax:

  1. What is the role of the principal in developing the instructional focus of the school?
  2. Under what conditions do teachers best learn to become more effective?
  3. What is the role of technology in accelerating learning?
  4. How can accountability be best addressed?

Please share your learning, experience, and wonderments. What 'stuck' for you? What would you like input about?

It's easy to join the discussion: Just go to http://principals.proboards.com to create your account and view the questions, comments, and add on to the thinking... It's really that easy and quick and a great opportunity to learn from each other.

Here are a few ways to work with principles from Motion Leaders in Action and support learning in your school, district, or at the provincial level:


Motion Leadership in Action - Book Study Guide: Download a free in depth book study guide. You and your staff can use this Guide for collaborative inquiry and target learning outcomes that make sense for your own system's needs.



Fullan Halifax Workshop Workbook April 2013: Many participants were asking us for a copy of the workbook they could use or share with staff. Michael has confirmed permission to distribute. Click here to download.

Hope this supports you and your learning team!
