About this Event

In this webinar series, Professor David Hopkins examines The Right Direction for Reform by describing the characteristics of high performing schools and their stages of development. Then how schools improve from the ‘inside out’ by emphasising moral purpose, identifying the non-negotiables and generating narrative. The focus is on describing in practical detail the Theories of Action that teachers can use to create great teaching, how leaders can generate intrinsic motivation and how teachers teach each other through peer coaching.
