Kristen Douglas returns in Feb 2021 with her "Processing 2020 and recalibrating for 2021" Webinar

14/01/2021

As we start the new year it’s important for teams to undertake some practical steps and processes to help teams punctuate 2020 in a strengths based, positive, and considered way. When school communities have been impacted by an event, be it short term or prolonged, it’s important to go through an articulated and guided stage of processing. This means processing the experience, processing the impact, processing the disruption, and ensuring we celebrated the gains and achievements.

NEW "Making Thinking Visible" Webinar Series with Ron Ritchhart

13/01/2021

Over the last decade there has been an ever-increasing interest in how teachers can foster deep learning and promote students’ thinking. The use of thinking routines, a practice originating from the researchers at Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, has emerged as a key practice in supporting these goals. In this series, participants will have a chance to learn how teachers are working with thinking routines to transform their classrooms into cultures of thinking, and to use the routines themselves to see how they work as tools for all learners.

ACEL Monograph #60 - Leading through crisis: resilience, recovery, and renewal

4/12/2020

ACEL presents Monograph #60 “Leading through crisis: resilience, recovery, and renewal” - by Tom Bentley and Aarushi Singhania. Free to access for ACEL Members.

2020 has been a year of crisis and upheaval, as the COVID 19 pandemic catalysed a global crisis affecting billions of people, altering the way we live, learn, and interact with others. In Australia, as everywhere, the crisis has forced us to grapple with endemic, everyday uncertainty, bringing a rhetoric of disruption and adaptation – a rhetoric that has long been part of our organisational lexicon, into the reality of our everyday experiences, and of impacts that we see taking place in the lives of people around us.
