Mobilising professional knowledge: A collaborative research-based approach to support school leadership

Mobilising professional knowledge: A collaborative research-based approach to support school leadership

In this session I will consider the potential of collaboration to support teachers and leaders in developing and improving their professional practice. Drawing on a research initiative that spanned the global pandemic, I will discuss the role of university researchers in creating spaces for participating educators to engage in cross-border dialogue and reflection with their peers.

This serves as a reminder of the appetite amongst teachers and leaders to engage in professional collaboration (Armstrong & Ainscow, 2018) and of the vast pools knowledge that exist within schools (Ainscow et al, 2012). I will argue that more could be done to capitalise on this (often untapped) expertise and enthusiasm for between-school collaboration to enable a greater mobilization of professional knowledge within education systems.

I will conclude by drawing links with the Educational Leadership in Practice (ELiP) programme through which we promote networking, reflection and the development of a research consciousness as a means of professional development and growth.

Back to the 70’s! How to Negotiate in Times of Supply Chain Inflation - by Professor Malcolm Smith

Back to the 70’s! How to Negotiate in Times of Supply Chain Inflation - by Professor Malcolm Smith

In this session, Malcolm will talk about how to negotiate in times of supply chain inflation.

Most people in business today have no experience of high levels of inflation: we have all grown so used to very low inflation and interest rates that we thought that was the norm! It certainly is not.

At points of inflexion, it is important to look at how the paradigm shifts which are part of these periods of change affect how we do business. Add into the mix a European war, and dysfunctional supply chains, and it is imperative to consider new ways to do business. Hopefully, having lived through several of these extraordinary periods, I can throw some light on how to modify behaviours rooted in a now defunct reality.
