Rural and Remote school leaders gather for first development seminars

Emeritus Professor John Halsey and Doctor Cam Brooks presented at our recent series of leadership seminars.

27 November 2020

More than 100 participants have taken part in online seminars this month as part of the School Leadership Institute’s Rural and Remote Leadership Development Program.

The program has been developed by the SLI to cater for the unique needs and challenges of school leaders in rural and remote NSW.

The latest three-day leadership seminar began with Emeritus Professor John Halsey, from Flinders University, sharing his expertise on rural and remote educational leadership.

This was followed by Dr Cam Brooks, from the University of Queensland, who discussed leading learning through a student centred feedback model.

The rural and remote leaders within the program are supported and challenged by experienced mentors building relational trust to foster learning and inquiry.

The mentors have a shared commitment to improve teaching and learning in and across the system. They will participate in residentials early next year providing valuable insight into rural and remote leaders’ context and their communities.

Rural and remote leaders participated in a five-day leadership seminar earlier this month. This included the SLI Leadership Frameworks, the importance of context through shared leadership conversations, situational analysis to inform leadership inquiry, and authenticity in leading Aboriginal education.

We look forward to re-joining our rural and remote leaders in their third leadership seminar in March 2021.
