Location: Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart

Intended Audience: Principals, Teachers and Education Leaders

Welcome to The Heart of Leadership, a conference for educational leaders. The conference theme attempts to capture some of the complex dimensions of leadership which can become lost in the day to day urgency of the principalship. In particular the proposers of this theme are looking to emphasise the characteristics of trust, integrity, relational skills and in creating cultures where individuals can flourish.

Our intention is that conference sessions should reflect these characteristics in designing processes which encourage reflection and reflect the conference theme of 'heart'. As such we will be emphasising an experiential conference in which we hope emotional connection with the conference themes will be feature as importantly as cognitive engagement. We want the conference to be a learning experience in the fullest totality of that word. To do this, the pedagogy of the conference will be predominantly 'arts' based and our invitation to participants is to experience and enjoy!

Program as at 20 May
