    • Scaling-up School Based Developments
      • The scaling-up problem
      • Origins of the problem (USA in the 70’ and 80’s)
      • Top-down and bottom-up policy implementation patterns
      • The „transition” context
    • Scaling-up School Based Developments
      • General Tools
      • Generating market for working ideas and innovations
      • Making additional resources available
      • Creating a free market for thoughts
      • Investing into support mechanisms
      • Building coalitions
    • Scaling-up School Based Developments T wo strategies
      • The policy of dissemination
      • Question: what are they doing and how?
      • Objective: the dissemination of the know-how
      • The most important tool is creating a network of co-operating schools
      • The policy of systemic scaling-up
      • Question: what are the conditions that allow them to do it?
      • Objective: ensuring the applicability of the know-how
      • The most important tool is modifying the systemic environment of schools
    • Scaling-up School Based Developments Comaprison of the two strategies 1.
      • The policy of dissemination
      • Adjustment to local context: inflexible
      • Impact on schools: direct, immediate and intensive
      • Number of schools involved: limited
      • Innovation often remains isolated within the school
      • The policy of systemic scaling-up
      • Adjustment to local context: flexible
      • Impact on schools: less intensive, indirect, delayed
      • Number of schools involved: not limited
      • Innovation easily infiltrates the school
    • Scaling-up School Based Developments Comaprison of the two strategies 2.
      • The policy of dissemination
      • The specific costs of development are relatively high
      • Getting external funds is easier, burden on state budget is lower
      • Ensuring cost-efficiency is easier
      • The policy of systemic scaling-up
      • The specific costs of development are lower
      • Getting external funds is harder, burden on state budget is bigger
      • Ensuring cost-efficiency is harder
    • Scaling-up School Based Developments
