Quality of teaching and learning in the school receive the highest priority, complemented by student well-being. Learning is the school’s central mandate. Everything else in a school is there to facilitate and support teaching and learning. So, teaching and learning must be at the centre of school evaluation and improvement.

This webinar draws on extensive research, advice and data on the practice and art of teaching and the nature of student learning. The challenge is never to find advice, but rather it is to effectively filter and discriminate between bad, good and great advice. Having identified the right advice, it can then be used to powerful effect in two ways. The first is to evaluate the current quality of teaching in the school and the second is to inform the planning of goals and priorities for improvement.

Webinar Objectives:

We will talk about the third domain of BSfS on School Leadership by:

1. Exploring the different leadership styles.
2. Discussing the role of a school leader in supporting teaching and learning as the school’s priority.
3. Examining the 'how' and 'why' of good professional learning and development.
4. Considering how good leaders are successful in the promotion of formal and informal collaboration.
