  1. Workplace Stability: Creating Conditions that Lead to Retention, Productivity, and Engagement in Entry-Level Workers

    There is no question that increased worker stability boosts productivity, retention and morale, which leads to greater profitability - but it may yet be a challenge you need to address. Why would an employer want to increase the personal and professional stability of workers? And how exactly can business go about it? It starts with seeing things differently. Instability is another measure of diversity in your workforce. Low-wage workers can experience personal instability that leads to absenteeism, health problems and violations of workplace expectations, all of which decreases morale, attention to work and job performance. These simple, inexpensive solutions can help stabilise your employees' lives - and boost your profitability and competitive advantage.

  4. Redesigning Schooling: Collaboration between schools

    In this booklet, Chris Smith argues that if schools are to lead the way in redesigning schooling it is down to them to create and operate a truly collaborative culture enabled through networks. Assessing the evidence so far on the role of collaboration in education, Chris observes that the evidence indicates strongly (more so than may currently be realised) that it can be a powerful driver of school improvement. But to harness the as-yet-untapped potential schools will need to genuinely understand and leverage the structures, complexities and dynamics of the different types of collaboration and networking. To help schools do this, he explores the characteristics of networks, the critical role of collaboration in innovation and suggests a framework for collaboration.

  5. Redesigning Schooling: Principled assessment design

    In this challenging booklet, Dylan Wiliam argues forcefully that schools must develop their own way of assessing children’s progress. He guides us through a nuanced way of thinking about assessment that should underpin the design of any model: knowing the limitations of types of assessment and the impact these have on the inferences you make; defining what you will assess and the purpose for which you will use the data; how you will collect, share and record it; and, critically, how you can design assessment systems that first and foremost support teaching and learning. 'Good summative assessment requires teachers to share a construct of quality, while good formative assessment requires helping students share the same construct of quality.'

  6. Redesigning Schooling: Engaging parents: Why and how

    In this entry in the Redesigning Schooling series, Professor Bill Lucas argues for the wholesale adoption of a strategy of parent and family and community engagement. He also makes the case for high levels of awareness among school leaders, teachers, parents and other community members about the kinds of parental engagement that really work - both to raise achievement and to develop learners who will thrive in the 21st century. Such activities need to be integral to school strategy, genuinely seen as important by all teachers, and regularly evaluated for their effectiveness.

  7. Redesigning Schooling: Student impact in the redesigned school

    Of all the stakeholder groups in education, children are the most important. At the heart of the Redesigning Schooling series is a focus on how students are supported and empowered in schools to have an impact of their own, and their peer's learning. This booklet charts the journey of student voice and student leadership towards a more complete and encompassing term: student impact. It provides the theory behind this development, and shares practical examples of how schools are changing attitudes to learning be involving students in the redesign of schooling. It ends by reiterating the potentially deep and far-reaching impacts that can be achieved through engaging students meaningfully in all aspects of school life.
