The passing of Dr Keith Tronc

12/04/22

It is with sadness that we advise ACEL members nationwide of the recent (March 18) passing of Dr Keith Tronc.

Dr Tronc was regarded as legendary in educational circles, nationally and internationally. He was for several decades the leading Australian exponent - and legal practitioner - of education and the law, particularly in matters of duty of care.

The ACEL annual Award for Teacher Leadership was named in Dr Tronc's honour. It signifies his lifelong devotion to the teaching profession. He also received the national award of OAM for his contributions to the complex field of educational law and his multitude of representations in courts of law in Australia and globally, particularly Pacific nations.

A more comprehensive analysis of the extraordinary professional life of Dr Keith Tronc will appear in an upcoming edition of AEL.

NEW Sydney workshop "Leading and Coaching a Culture of Thinking" with Dr. Ron Ritchhart

16/03/2022

A key principle of the Worldwide Cultures of Thinking Project is that for classrooms to be cultures of thinking for students, schools have to be cultures of thinking for teachers. Achieving this goal often demands that schools shift and change the types of conversations they have to better focus them on issues of teaching and learning than on issues of schooling. We see the most gains in student performance and school transformation when schools make the discussion of thinking, examination of student work, and the taking of risks in trying new teaching practices central to the work of the school.
