8 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre 1. To be effective, every leader must have moral purpose. 2. Moral purpose should be involved in both process and the end product. 4. Moral purpose is difficult because you have to contend with different ideas and cultures that people in organisations bring to the community. 3.

16 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Reflection is… “…the ability to look back and make sense of what happened and what you learned. But it’s also the ability to look forward, to anticipate what’s coming up, and what you need to do to prepare.” York-Barr, J., Sommers, W. A., Ghere, G. S., & Montie, J. (2006). Reflective Practice to Improve Schools. Edwards-Groves, 2003 TASK

17 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre The Reflective Practice Spiral illustrating four levels at which reflection can be developed: (York-Barr et al..)

18 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Policy statement Professional learning for school staff should contribute to the professional growth of staff and improved student outcomes in NSW public schools. The individual, the school, state office and regions share responsibility for promoting, planning, implementing and evaluating professional learning in schools. (Professional learning policy for schools, Department of Education and Communities, 2004: )

19 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Professional learning metaphors ‘Pass the parcel’ The ‘journey’ / ‘expedition’ The ‘pit’ stop (Action research as professional development, Shirley Grundy, 1995)

20 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre 1: Professional learning is focused on student outcomes (not just individual teacher needs). 2: Professional learning is focused on and embedded in teacher practice (not disconnected from the school). 3: Professional learning is informed by the best available research on effective learning and teaching (not just limited to what they currently know). 4: Professional learning is collaborative, involving reflection and feedback (not just individual inquiry). The seven principles of highly effective professional learning:

21 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre 5: Professional learning is evidence-based and data- driven (not anecdotal) to guide improvement and to measure impact. 6: Professional learning is ongoing, supported and fully integrated into the culture and operations of the system-schools, networks, regions and the centre (not episodic and fragmented). 7: Professional learning is an individual and collective responsibility at all levels of the system (not just the school) and it is not optional. (Professional learning in effective schools: The seven principles of highly effective professional learning, Leadership and Teacher Development Branch, Department of Education and Training, Victoria, 2005.)

22 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Building capacity … when teachers and other colleagues work and learn collaboratively with a clear focus on learning – of students and of themselves – schools’ and, ultimately, the system’s overall capacity is built, helping to raise standards and promote a broader range of outcomes, as well as generating and supporting sustainable improvements. … whatever else you are focusing on... You need to be working on developing your professional learning community in parallel and in relation to these efforts, to help embed them into your working practices. (Stoll et al., 2006)

23 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Professional learning community Group as well as individual professional learning Inclusive membership Mutual trust, respect and support Collaboration focused on learning Reflective professional enquiry Collective responsibility for students’ learning Openness, networks and partnerships Shared values and vision (Louise Stoll, 2006)

24 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Broad phases of the journey to develop a PLC … Starting out – acquiring information and beginning to use ideas Developing – experimenting with strategies and building on initial commitment Deepening – well on the way, having achieved a degree of mastery and feeling the benefits Sustaining – introducing new developments, and re-evaluating quality – PLC as a way of life Deciding where you are as a PLC, Stoll et al (2006)

25 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre … She also notes there is a profound relationship between specific teaching practices and student achievement and that these practices are related to teacher professional learning opportunities. At the risk of pointing out the obvious, teachers cannot change their practices if they do not learn new ones. … the key to producing changes in teaching practice is providing opportunities for teachers to view themselves as learners. (Darling–Hammond, 1999, cited in Hinde, 2003) Change processes

26 Phase 1 Module 1 Leading FoR 3-6 in your school NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre Three dimensions of CBAM: Stages of concern – seven reactions to new programs/initiatives – KNOW; REACT. Levels of use – behaviours as teachers become more familiar and more skilled in using the new program/innovation – USE. Innovation configurations – teachers adapt programs/innovations in their own situations – REFLECT; INNOVATION. Think about this in relation to your own learning. Change processes
