Developing Educational Leaders
Holding strong to the belief that educational change comes from finding the green shoots of innovation, sharing experiences, and collaborating to amplify the impact of initiatives, Jen Buchanan's keynote presentations take you on a journey, a voyage around the world, an adventure. Walk away with a new appreciation for different cultures, an excitement for the future of education and a renewed passion for the work we do as educators.
Students of today will work in communities of tomorrow where they will need to make decisions that are inclusive of diverse perspectives and act on issues that transcend traditional boundaries. They will need the skills to work in communities across different cultures and to solve complex problems that may not have simple solutions. Our collective responsibility is to create diverse and global communities with our students, and to prepare them for the world of tomorrow, where they equipped to challenge bias, develop shared learning and connect with multiple perspectives.
We (that’s the big ‘Human We’) are responsible to ensure that not only our immediate environments, the current schools we find ourselves in are fit for purpose but to recognise we are all part something bigger. Coaching is a powerful tool for our own personal journey and also as a tool for navigating how we can work together to co-create a more human centered education system, rich in fulfilment, joy, meaning and belonging – where we each feel more empowered in the work we do.
