The Leadership Research International (LRI) group is the longest running school improvement research and development group in Australia with an international reputation for excellence. We are a team of academics with many years of professional field experience. We work with you to understand your needs and to build your school’s capacity for sustainable school improvement.
What are your school improvement needs?
The IDEAS program, and its comprehensive measurement tool, the DISA (Diagnostic Inventory of School Alignment), allowed our College to challenge what we do, what we plan to do, and what we assume we do, through the lens of learning as a whole school. The development of our School-wide Pedagogy was a crucial step towards ensuring all functions of the College- teaching programs, extra-curricula, even buildings and facilities- are focused on improving, developing and delivering our core purpose in a manner aligned with our core purpose: learning. Perhaps the greatest marker of its success is the quality of conversations within the College and the shared learning-centred language used by staff, students and families alike.
I commend IDEAS as a highly focused, collaborative, whole school approach to meaningful and innovative improvement.
