Abstract:
Learning to Learn is a South Australian project funded by the Department of Education Training and Employment. Its focus is on whole school reform through the redesign of learning experiences for the whole school community. School leaders in the Learning to Learn Project attend regular "Learning Circles" with the Project Manager and colleagues from the University of South Australia to explore the issues and challenges facing leaders of changing schools, and share strategies for supporting learning in their school communities. This paper reports on research which was conducted during the first eighteen months of the project which highlights issues and strategies identified by school leaders through the Learning Circles. These include: planning for change, engaging and supporting staff in the change process, and communicating learning about the change process to others.
