Your mindframes—your internal beliefs about your role as a leader—determine the high-impact leadership practices you choose to implement. Building on over twenty-five years of Visible Learning research, thinking and acting evaluatively is core to mindframes of highly impactful leaders of learning.

So, what is evaluative thinking and why is it important? What does it actually look like in practice? How do you build a learning organisation where thinking and acting evaluatively is what leaders, teachers and students do every day as part of the learning process?

Attend this symposium to learn:

  • About the related research of mindframes of leaders who think and act evaluatively and have a major impact on the learning lives of students.
  • How to strengthen evaluative thinking and doing as a leader.
  • How to cultivate these ways of thinking and acting across your school.

Walk away with practical ideas, strategies and resources to help strengthen your mindframes and the mindframes of others to think and act evaluatively

10 Mindframes for Leaders

It’s not what you do, it’s how you think about what you do.

Mindframes—your internal set of beliefs about your role as school leader—determine the high-impact leadership practices you choose to implement. In other words, how you think about the impact of the actions you take has more effect on student achievement than your leadership practices themselves.
