    Making the most of uLearn18
    2 October
    Public discussion Created by Anne Kenneally

    With less than one week to go it is timely to look at how to get the most out of your uLearn experience.


    uLearn is CORE Education’s annual professional learning conference, suitable for teachers, facilitators and school leaders alike, from early childhood through to tertiary, or from kōhanga through to Whare Wānanga, and other key stakeholders.

    Across three days of continual PLD (or four days if you also attend the pre-conference), you will get the opportunity to connect and collaborate with New Zealand and international educators who have at their heart the interests of all learners to develop practical solutions to innovate in your learning space.


    But wait, there’s more! You can take part in uLearn even if you are not coming to the conference!


    The #notatulearn hashtag offers you the chance to follow along and experience uLearn virtually this year.  There are two live streamed sessions available to you this year too. For those people in Māori medium settings not attending uLearn please feel free to contribute to this kaupapa, reo ingarihi mai, reo Māori ma rānei! Mā mātou koutou e awhina, e whakautua i ōu pātai

    Sofa session: Leadership as a collective endeavour

    uLearn Breakout 5 Thu 11 Oct 2018, 1:45 - 3:15PM

    NOTE: This session will be live streamed for our #notatulearn participants.

    This panel session will provide a group of education leaders to share and debate their ideas and experiences as we seek to deepen our understanding of the importance of a collective view of leadership in the NZ context.

    Collective leadership occurs when people come together and mobilise human, cultural, and technological resources in ways that improve their communities for the common good. It is an inherently inclusive approach to leadership because it asks individuals to cross boundaries of all types – such as age, income, religion, and culture – as they commit to the concepts of Ako, joint action, shared responsibility, and mutual accountability. It represents a shift away from an exclusive focus on individual schools and school leaders and highlights the importance of more collaborative approaches.


    Panelists: Morag Hutchinson, Wharehoka Wano, Pasi Sahlberg
    Facilitator: Derek Wenmoth
