In 2007 I had the great privilege of being asked to facilitate at the first Scottish Leadership International Summer School. It was a great event and really kick started an exciting partnership journey between the National CPD and myself. I blogged about the event at the time and it still remains one of the best conferences I have ever attended.
Last summer I had to turn down my place as I was away with a group of young people in the Cascade Mountains but I was delighted when I heard that the Leadership School would be returning for its third year.
This year the theme of the school is Creativity and Innovation in School Leadership: realising the potential of the Curriculum for Excellence. The programme really is looking fantastic. With input form a number o world class speakers including:
- Jim Spillane Northwestern University, Illinois, USA;
- Steve Munby National College for School Leadership, England;
- Bob Fryer Department for Health, England;
- Irwin Turbitt Warwick Business School; and
- Scotland’s own Ewan McIntosh (now at Channel 4)
I’ve been asked to run one of the round table CfE discussion groups on the Tuesday. During this workshops I’ll be talking about Nomadic learning: building personal learning networks. I’ve been asked to cover this following successful input at the recent Building Windmills event.
More information on the Leadership school can be found at www.scotlandschoolleadershipevent.com. The website is also a great archive of the previous two events with some great footage that can be used for personal CPD.
