ACU ICCEL 2013by Fraynework
Includes the full agenda for the three days, speaker biographies and sponsor information.
The conference has five sub-themes:
Leading for mission and identity: Exploring the unique aspects of Catholic school identity, and the challenges this presents for leaders as they seek to evangelize in situations where religious practice is declining, and staffs and student bodies are becoming increasingly diverse.
Leading for inclusion: Exploring issues such as the declining presence of the poor in Catholic schools and our engagement with those of other faiths. Considering our role in national reconciliation - how our schools welcome Indigenous students, address issues of race, and contribute to strong leadership of the Indigenous education agenda.
Leading for educational quality: Challenging conventions about quality, exploring the fundamental purposes of Catholic education, how these should shape our approaches to learning and leadership. Juggling the broader mission of our schools in an accountability regime.
Leading on the big stage: Engaging with the emerging understandings of leading systems of schools. Exploring the new movements in school governance, such as PJPs. Considering the influence of government funding on our schools, and how we use it. Asking ourselves what is best for our students in these emerging scenarios.
Leading in partnership: Celebrating the role of the Catholic school as a part of the mission of the wider Church. Sharing lessons of school-parish partnerships. Considering the best ways in which schools and parents can collaborate. Finding out about "new generation" partnerships with business, industry and other education providers.
