Event Details

This is a Centre for Research in Educational Leadership and Management seminar

 Presented by Phil Taylor, Assistant Professor, School of Education

This seminar draws on a doctoral study of teacher professional growth, considered as a complex adaptive process that is unique in every case and rooted in experiences of educational practice. Complexity thinking is used to explore this process, whereby individual learning and development unfold within one or more organisational contexts that mediate the external conditions of an education system currently dominated by performativity. Of particular interest is the concept of complicity, mutually adaptive change, between teacher and learner, leader and teacher, teacher and context, and researcher and research. Some key aspects of complicity will be suggested and those attending the seminar will be asked to consider implications for educational leadership. Complex situations, often intractable and unpredictable, are sometimes called ‘wicked’ problems (though not necessarily with negative connotations), requiring leaders to build their own and others’ capabilities for dealing with them.

Refreshments will be available.
