Webinar: Overview and recording


A huge thanks to those of you who attended yesterday's webinar, with particular thanks to Karen Morganand Tania Savage who generously gave their time to prepare and share their stories of managing e-learning resourcing as leaders in their schools.

For those who were unable to attend - or if you want to experience it all again! - here is the recording link (Firefox/Safari are preferable to Chrome):



The powerpoint slides are also available below:



Key points


Some of the key points that we covered (and there were plenty) included:

  • the importance of a clear focus, with pedagogy and philosophy driving the decision-making
  • how a leader might respond when the context or environment are uncertain
  • that staffing and professional learning are our most important resources
  • the value of networks and relationships with your community to sustain you in small schools or through periods of staff change
  • knowing the needs and strengths of your students and your whānau/community, and designing for those.


There were also practical examples of how two schools have managed the resourcing process - always good to peep through the doorway at how other schools are managing, both in primary and seocndary.

Thanks again to all who attended and shared their ideas and comments. It's always good to come together from across NZ to kick thoughts around together, as well as in online forums such as this one.

And let's keep the examples and queries rolling in this kōrero, too.
