Michael Fullan draws on his cumulative insights about change initiatives over the years to identify the most powerful ideas associated with success. Key strategies that integrate quality ideas with quality change processes will be presented as they apply to concrete change situations.
Participants will learn about effective approaches to each of the following levels: within school success; success across schools and regions; and how to relate to the state and federal levels. Specific examples will be examined at each level. Next generation reform will be identified related to factors that will deepen and accelerate learning required for future societies through powerful new pedagogies linked to digital resources.
