Session 1: Reach (and teach) for the Stars: An optimistic approach to whole school improvement

9:30am – 10:30am
Speaker: Wayne Craig
Former Australian Vice President for McREL, Former DET Regional Director of the Northern Metropolitan Region from 2005-12

Wayne will address five key questions:

· How do we build a positive view of students, teachers and schools?

· Why must we move away from ‘back to the future’ and lowest common denominator policy approaches?

· How can we build literacy for now and the future not just the past?

· Why do we need to focus on curiosity, engagement and empowerment?

· What are practical ways for ensuring thinking, understanding and learning occurs in schools?
