About this Event

"Change isn't really as hard as we thought if we capture people's interest and give them enjoyable, worthwhile experiences." - Michael Fullan

Whether you’re introducing learning portfolios, deploying a 1:1 device program or shifting to a new curricular framework the challenge is inherently the same. How do you ensure the initiative is not only successfully implemented but sustainable in the long term?
