Influential Curriculum Leadership

Chinese International School, Hong Kong

April 21-22, 2018

Our Goal: As a result of this workshop, participants will have built their capacity as influential curriculum leaders and will:

- Be aware of how beliefs and values shape behaviours and choices around learning and what this means when leading curriculum.

- Understand the role of definitions of learning and learning principles.

- Understand how the written curriculum can be framed and how this influences teaching, assessment, recording and reporting.

- Plan to lead different types of dialogue about learning: moderation and calibration; evidence based conversations about learning; looking for learning.

- Be able to identify different types of challenge and choose congruent behaviours.

- Reflect upon opportunities in their current context to use their leadership to improve learning.

Target Audience: Those responsible for leading learning - Directors of Learning, Teaching, Curriculum, Curriculum Coordinators and those in other positions such as Principal or Vice Principal who have responsibility for the quality of learning.


In recent years the role of ‘Director of Learning’ or ‘Curriculum Director’ has rapidly expanded in international schools, alongside longer standing roles such as curriculum coordinator for a specific programme. Whilst the management part of these roles is often straightforward, there is often no preparation for leadership from a position which requires influential leadership, rather than traditional hierarchical leadership. This workshop is intended to give serving or aspiring learning and curriculum leaders a set of mental maps and tools to help them improve learning through developing their influential leadership.

The speakers are donating their fees for this workshop to, a high school for refugees who want to change the world.

Participant Preparation:

Participants would benefit from bringing a sample of learning goals (curriculum) from their school, assessments aligned to these, records of learning they would expect a teacher to keep and a report. They could also come prepared to talk about their current strategic plans for leading curriculum. These will not need to be formally shared rather they will be used by participants to refer to during sessions.
