In every school or district there are “pockets of excellence,” great teachers innovating and enhancing pedagogical practices. But if schools are to move from pockets of excellence to widespread reform they have to develop a system that acknowledges, encourages, and rewards innovative teachers willing to take chances to meet student needs. Yet, reluctant or negative staff members may dissuade innovative teachers from risk-taking and so it’s essential that school leaders take away that negative power. In this session, we'll examine concepts and practices designed to nurture innovative practices across an entire faculty and combat stagnation. As Stanford researcher Linda Darling-Hammond underlines, "the intensive development of teachers and leaders" should be the central focus of school improvement and is they key to developing a positive and risk-taking culture.
