How to engage?

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

    Hi Fearghal – I didn’t realise you had moved to SCEL. Best wishes for your new job. Read your post on HGIOS4with interest – I’ve only just got to it. Some interesting changes of tack which may take some time to bed in.

        Hi Fearghal

        Very busy at present. Having done all the documents for AH, my team has reduced in size and we are about to do a whole load of fieldwork visits, covering all authorities in Scotland. Still enjoying it though the train from Dunbar to Glasgow for a lot of the week can be a bit of a chore, especially since it is now dark at both ends of the day. Maybe we should catch up for a chat at some point about matters of mutual interest? I think HGIOS4 is interesting but schools may find it challenging.

So, what do you think ?
