  3. Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar Learning Guide, Third Revised Edition

    For schools to effectively respond to the press for accountability and provide quality learning for all students, they must simultaneously address two perennial goals. One goal is the professional development of individual educators. The second is the development of the organisation’s capacity to learn and be adaptive. Both build the capacity for school improvement, without which reform efforts will fail. The Guide is based upon the previous five editions of the Adaptive Schools Syllabus, created by Robert Garmston and Bruce Wellman. The Learning Guide is grounded in the text, The Adaptive School: A Sourcebook for Developing Collaborative Groups, and cross-references to the Sourcebook are made throughout this Guide. Designed to support administrators, teachers, department and regional personnel and staff developers who convene and manage professional learning teams and leadership teams.
