Professional Development 

This page lists the formal Professional Development I have taken part in.  


I participated in Ministry provided Learning with Digital Technologies, facilitated by Core Education. 

I attended a mini-conference with Carol Dweck and Guy Claxton.  They discussed their research and developments in Growth vs Fixed Mindset and Building Learning Power.  These are research based strategies that support learners to develop positive attitudes and strategies towards learning.

I completed my Masters of Education, earning First Class Honours 
Courses completed: 
Leadership of Learning; Curriculum Leadership; Leadership for School and Centre Improvement; Educational Leadership and the Law in New Zealand

During 2014 I was on study leave through Teach NZ allowing me to study full time and complete these papers.  I chose to complete my Masters through papers as I felt this would give me a wider range of knowledge to draw on when I returned to my role as principal.

I attended the  ICMA Leadership conference in Charlotte North Carolina and an exchange to Dubuque Iowa - Collaborative Art piece 

This conference focused on community leadership within local government structures and included a large focus on collaboration between sectors.  As local government is responsible for education policy in the USA there were many relevant workshops and presentations.  In Dubuque I was able to attend some schools and meet with local education leaders to discuss developments in their area to work more collaboratively with education providers as well as local council to support educational achievement for all students in their community.

 I completed my Post Grad in Education, endorsed in Learning with Digital Technologies 

Courses Completed: 

I completed ____ , the first course towards my post graduate qualification
