Improving from Within A Positive Approach to School Improvement
What can we learn from the emerging science of Positive Psychology, of how human beings thrive and how should this understanding of human well being influence our schools?
We are experiencing seismic changes in the educational landscape but how many educationalists are asking the question about what education is really for in a global, technological and competitive world. In this world, what is the job of a teacher and how is it changing? How do we co-create a curriculum with our students that is relevant and engaging? What does pedagogy look like in this generation and how can we develop ‘contracting’ relationships between students and teachers? As leaders, how do we take courageous steps to lead our schools in a direction we intuitively know is good but may go against received wisdom?
Improving from WithIn is a model for school improvement that has developed from 20 years of working with schools and noting what really works as well as observing the impact on the teaching profession of increasing negative extrinsic drivers. It is time to re-address the balance. Improving from WithIn is our response.
