An item for my Kiwi readers.

Kia ora Michael

Over the month of July we’ll be sharing a number of educational leadership resources to support you in your learning environment. With Term 2 wrapped up, hopefully you’ll have a few moments to curl up somewhere comfy and delve into some leadership-specific professional learning.

Featured podcasts

This week, we throw a spotlight on the Spiral of Inquiry framework. These thought-provoking podcasts provide great insight into the thinking and pedagogy behind it.

Upcoming learning opportunities

If you’re looking for some creative and courageous leadership direction, check out these professional learning opportunities.

Looking for customised leadership development?

We can help with adaptive and responsive solutions to meet your strengths and needs. We can also integrate leadership development with localised curriculum – you may even find locally-focused PLD could apply.
More leadership-specific resources will be shared on our social media accounts in the next few weeks. To access them as they are published, simply follow us by clicking on the social icons at the bottom of this email. Feel free to forward this email to your colleagues, perhaps you can push the boundaries of educational leadership together. Happy holidays!
