“I’m the Principal”: An exploration of Principal learning, action, influence and identity

Monday 18th June 2018

Event Details

ACE Inner Sydney Region and ACE Sutherland St George Region invite you to their first combined event of 2018. 

This presentation outlines the findings of a recent interview study with 50 Australian principals (primary, secondary; government and non-government; every state and territory; metropolitan, regional, remote), conducted by Stephen Dinham, Kerry Elliott, Louisa Rennie and Helen Stokes.

Using the Australian Professional Standards for Principals as a framework, the study considered what it means to be a principal today and the implications arising from this. The study is to be published by ACER Press in mid 2018 and is a follow up to Dinham’s best-selling book Leading, Learning & Teaching, published in 2016.

We encourage everyone to join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening.

Ticket costs include a two-course meal. Tables of 8 are available at discounted member’s pricing.
