Senior Leaders’ Webinar 1: Re-Imagining the Purpose of Education: Lessons from Lockdown led by Rob Carpenter
The first in our series of inspirational senior leader webinars will be led by Rob Carpenter, Trust Leader for the Inspire Partnership. The session will cover a variety of themes designed to support school leaders in planning priorities as we question what lessons we have learnt from lockdown and the purpose of education. We will introduce the possibility that instead of education being slave to desired outcomes, (what education should do), we should reposition education for what it actually is. We will extend thinking around the social nature of learning and the need to ensure collaboration is placed more centrally within the learning journey.
During the session Rob will explore:
Re-framing the purpose of education:
The domains of learning:

Reflections and questions
DATE: Friday 25th September 2020
