I’ve been working with Critical Publishing in putting together a series of books on education leadership and learning. The books focus on change management at the level of culture. and with the focus of improving student performance.
Each chapter is honed down to a number of key concepts, an exposition of current trends and research, opportunities to triangulate your own experience against that outlined in the text, and practical case notes from my work with schools to help develop your school’s change management plans.
Although the exemplars are mostly UK-based, the concerns addressed will be familiar to anyone leading learning at a departmental level or schools as part of the senior leadership team. I’ve had the opportunity to reflect on conversations with Indian, American and European education leaders in putting the text together.
This first book will be available in April 2019.
I’m currently working on the second book which explores effective preparation for examinations from a pupil, school and parental perspective. Again this works at the level of the psychology of preparing for examinations, techniques and some vital issues which tend to be sorely neglected.
Future Proof Your School by David W Hughes for Critical Publishing (ISBN: 978- 1- 912508- 44- 0) is published in the first week of April and is available at www.criticalpublishing.com and all good bookshops.
