Lyn and Beate’s recently published book ‘Leading Collaborative Learning: Empowering Excellence’ provides research-proven approaches to achieving sustainable communities of collaborative learners. The conference will provide opportunities for leaders in the Scottish education system to engage with these approaches, explore leadership strategies that create conditions for collaborative learning, and discover how these may apply in your setting.
