In August 2015 the Hartley Institute hosted 70 School Principals, Deputy Principals and School Leaders for a full-day workshop at Prince Alfred College, facilitated by Dr Simon Breakspear. Simon, an internationally recognised keynote speaker and facilitator, led the group on a deep learning experience “Redesigning Teaching and Learning for Innovation”.
The event was unique in that it brought together educational leaders from all three sectors in South Australia.
The day was an overwhelming success as many who attended expressed strong interest in supporting future events of that kind and in engaging with a professional learning community within South Australia.
Many participants expressed the desire to progress into a much “deeper dive” program with Simon in the near future.”
Dr Breakspear has indicated his desire to form an alliance with The Hartley Institute to bring his programs and those of colleagues with whom he has relationships to South Australia.
The day demonstrated the demand for quality professional learning programs in South Australia and the capacity for significant cross-sector events to attract participants.
