Emeritus Professor Neil Dempster and Professor Greer Johnson (Griffith University, Brisbane) are our guests at the next LfL Seminar in October.

Inside schools, the impact of principals’ leadership is known to be second only to quality teaching in impacting improvement in student learning. This seminar explains the processes and findings from three Australian research and development projects that have built on the findings of the Leadership for Learning: Carpe Vitam Project (McBeath et al 2002 -2005).

The three projects focus on principals leading teachers and others to improve student literacy. Generated from a common set of values and a Leadership for Learning Framework or Blueprint, they confirm the need for principals to take a hands-on approach to literacy improvement in their schools, not necessarily in terms of becoming literacy experts themselves, but certainly in becoming knowledgeable about what works, so as to lead the staff and students to sustainable improvement.
