Session 7


How can principals support inquiry
Running good inquiry learning is not easy, as leader of your school you need to have a clear idea of …
  • what quality learning is
  • what you want your teachers to be achieving
  • the link between inquiry, school vision and school curriculum
  • the practical issues of how much school infrastructure actually acts as barriers to good inquiry
This will also be your chance to ask questions.
