This two-day workshop is designed to provide school leaders, department heads, team leaders and aspiring leaders with the concepts and tools to lead professional inquiry in their schools with the overall goal of increasing quality and equity for all learners.


Based on extensive case study research and empirical evidence in British Columbia, Canada and in New Zealand, the spiral of inquiry is now being used in several jurisdictions including England, Sweden, Catalonia, the Yukon Territories and Australia.


Participants will develop and / or extend understanding in the following areas:

  • The connection between moral purpose, clear goals and school leadership

  • The impact of mindset and curiosity on school culture – and learner motivation

  • The importance of change initiatives being grounded in a solid understanding of learning from both a Western and an Indigenous perspective

  • The specific stages of the spiral of inquiry – and the role of the leader in leading professional inquiry

Case studies of genuine and sustained school change from a range of jurisdictions will be used to illustrate the key ideas.
