The Learning Renaissance

Cultural Change – Designing the Staff Meeting

Few elements of organisation and communication reveal more about the dominant culture of the school than the staff meeting.

Well designed and purposeful, they can be an essential element in driving the school forward in an inclusive and purposeful way. Badly managed, they waste time and dilute commitment.

The conduct of the meeting must not start with an agenda, but by considerations of how best to use the energy and attention of everyone in attendance to a common purpose and shared understanding.

To this end, I found this article from our Edutopia colleagues, Katie Novak and Mike Woodlock very useful: Designing a Better School Staff Meeting | Edutopia

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
