So, I’m now two weeks into my secondment with SCEL and what a fortnight it has been!
Given that my job is about teacher leadership, I had obviously started off by reading as much as I could about teacher leadership. But…my job is primarily to be about *engaging* with folk on teacher leadership, so how on earth am I going to do that? I had started with some basic questions which had first occurred to me, but Lesley pointed me in the direction of ULab: workforcescotland.com/ulab
Since then I’ve become engrossed with Theory U by catching up on the ULab MOOC as quickly as possible, and have spent a fair bit of time considering how to use this to inform our approach to engaging on teacher leadership. I’ve now got a plan and I’m excited to be sharing it with @TeamSCEL on Monday morning…
As a result of my exploration of ULab, I’ve also discovered the wonderfully supportive #ulabscot community and have already had opportunities to meet with some interesting folk.
And finally, I’ve now got my SCEL twitter account all set up, please give me a follow: @fearghal_scel
