Can you improve innovation through training?

It’s that time of year when many of us come up with a list of New Year’s resolutions – improvements we hope to achieve in our personal and professional lives. As education professionals, perhaps your focus is to implement a change, big or small, at your school or in your classroom. Or maybe you simply want to participate in more, or better, professional development.

No matter what your goals for 2016, consider the training programs at Education Changemakers. Like Jacaranda, Australian founders Aaron Tait and Dave Faulkner are passionate about improving innovation in education and have a variety of training programs designed to do just that, including:

  • Changemaker program: A year-long training course to prepare innovative education leaders
  • IDEAlab: An innovation course to drive improvements in your school
  • Short courses: Powerful sessions to rapidly build teacher and school leader capacity

In addition to training, Education Changemakers can also help with events, from organising custom education events to delivering keynote speeches. To learn more, visit their website at http://educationchangemakers.com/index.html.

Also watch for the new book by Aaron Tait and Dave Faulkner called Edupreneur: Unleashing Teacher Led Innovation in Schools coming in May 2016. To learn more about the book, visit http://ca.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0730329224.html.
