Towards a Moving School : Developing a Professional Learning and Performance Culture
Towards a Moving School is part of the Educational Leadership Dialogues series, which teams up ACER researchers and experienced school principals to write short, evidence-based, practical guides on topics of significance, with the aim of highlighting significant areas of agreement and disagreement, or difference of focus. In Towards a Moving School, the theory and practice behind schools with strong learning and performance cultures is examined. The book explores why and how schools become ‘moving’ schools, with teachers who have high levels of professional accountability, taking personal and collective responsibility for improving students’ learning and their own teaching methods. Moreover, it explains why and how principals and school leaders should understand and respect the complexity of teachers’ professional knowledge base and value their work accordingly, if they are to mobilise the collective capacity of their staff.
