Conditions for Learning

How do I create the conditions for teachers to learn?

based on Steven Katz video

How do I influence my staff?

As a principal, the teachers in my school become my class of students and my role is to help my class learn.


My ability to influence them becomes my Problem of Practice.


I need to visibly and publicly learn along-side my class in order to have influence.

What are the conditions for learning and how do I create them in order to be effective?

Define the Success Criteria.


Then ask the right questions to stimulate conversation.

How do we, as leaders, support each other?

Use the Inquiry Cycle: Plan-Act-Observe-Reflect.


Invite a Critical Friend to help monitor my practice and then reflect on my effectiveness and potential next steps.
