and yes, that’s an intentionally ambiguous title :) (The full version was Learning leadership: the interplay between our own professional development and our classroom practice.)
I recently gave a pecha kucha** presentation on this subject, at an Ako Aotearoa mini-symposium up in Auckland. The idea for the subject of my presentation leapt to the front of my mind while I was at a Teaching Network*** meeting looking at how to raise the profile of teaching in tertiary institutions (specifically, universities). One of my colleagues kicked off part of the discussion with a brief talk on developing leadership in teaching, & I thought, all this applies to leading/guiding our students to become better learners, as well. Which is pretty much the thrust of my presentation. I pretty much use slides as talking points:
And we finished up with some ideas on what future-focused leadership in teaching and learning could look like.
It would be really good to hear your thoughts on this :)
** a maximum of 20 slides, with a maximum of 20 seconds per slide. Certainly forces you to focus your ideas. Mine wasn’t that long, because I wanted to use it to spur discussion & so we need time for that in my short presentation slot.
*** an in-house group for staff from across the institution with an interest in all things to do with teaching.
