Living Local, Thinking Global: Creating and Sustaining Pedagogies

To add a paper, Login.

Effective school leadership is about creating and sustaining pedagogies that enable the school community to balance the changing demands of global and local citizenship. Sustaining pedagogies account for diverse students’ intellectual and social needs ranging from local to community context. Teachers need to develop a range of skills to ensure students are adequately equipped to connect with change via a range of local and global literacies and skills to be able to make ideal intellectual and social choices for personal learning pathways. How can school leaders ensure that sustaining pedagogies are planned for, taught for and evaluated at their school? How do leaders create a climate that fosters an environment that promotes the 'living local, thinking global ethos'?

This workshop explores specific strategies used in the Northern Territory of Australia to drive conversations and process. Participants will engage with a set of conversational tools needed to implement changes to teaching and learning programs.
