Leadership from the Middle: The Beating Heart of Educational Transformation

How can education leaders create agile, safe, and effective learning environments that help young people develop the knowledge and character to shape their futures—despite the complex challenges we face?

Renowned education scholar and speaker Andy Hargreaves explores a novel leadership approach that drives transformational change–Leadership from the Middle. The middle should not be ignored or treated as just a connector of everything else. It is the beating heart of everything that schools and school systems do, keeping leadership close to where teaching and learning happen. Drawing on global educational leadership research and practice, this keynote empowers leaders to view obstacles as opportunities and to lead through collaboration, inspiration, and inclusion.

Identities in Schools: Creating Inclusion and Belonging for Everyone

There is no equity without inclusion and there is no inclusion without everyone—of every identity—seeing themselves in the school and its curriculum and feeling they belong. Developing young people’s selves and character is as important as promoting their achievement. Identity matters to all of us, every student, every teacher, and every parent. But identities are not simple or singular. There are many facets to all our identities. What you see isn’t always what you get. Identities are not boxes we can tick. They are young people we need to get to know.

In this unique, inspiring, and provocative presentation, Andy Hargreaves talks about the themes he raises in his latest book that can help every student feel included and successful in school.

Well-Being in Schools

Students’ well-being is a prominent concern among educators, as issues related to mental health, global crises, and social media are impossible to ignore. But what, exactly, is well-being? How can school systems promote it to increase student achievement and social and emotional learning?

Well-being supports learning and inspired learning generates greater well-being. In this inspiring and provocative keynote, world-renowned education expert Andy Hargreaves uncovers three powerful forces you can leverage to create effective well-being policy and practice—prosperity for all, ethical technology use, and restorative nature—so you can improve well-being not only for students but for society as a whole.
