How can professional learning in education respond to growing inequality, and the rapid social and technological change that surrounds us? It is more important than ever that educators continually learn, improve their practice, and respond to the diverse learners and communities they work with. This webinar presents “developing adaptive expertise” as a way that educators can help realize transformative improvement in their own practice and for their learners. Deidre Le Fevre and Kaye Twyford will explain what adaptive expertise is, how it works, why it helps create change and improvement in complex learning environments, and how it can be applied in your own context. 

Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Become familiar with key research about the importance of adaptive expertise in professional learning and educational change
  • Learn about the key dispositions underpinning working with adaptive expertise
  • Identify specific “deliberate acts” of facilitation you can use in your own leadership and facilitation practice to improve outcomes for learners
  • Develop leadership skills for leading learning in unpredictable, complex, and changing contexts
