EDUPRENEURS: Lessons from educational pioneers on how to lead future-focused change

Published on

Do you think it is time for leaders to challenge the status quo, embrace fresh thinking and adapt for the future? The thinking and practices of educational leadership that have secured improvement in the past will not be sufficient for the challenges of the future. To keep pace with a rapidly shifting, globalised world, C21st educational leaders at all levels must adopt flexible mindsets and develop the competencies to make change happen. EDUpreneurship represents an action-oriented and solution-focused philosophy of educational leadership that seeks to break free from ‘schooling-as-usual’. As courageous leaders, at all levels, step into EDUpreneurship they seek to embrace change, think counter-intuitively and execute on innovative solutions to improve student learning.
