Are you looking to explore new ways of thinking and doing in education? Do you want to pursue ideas for impact – not just for the benefit of your own school, but education more broadly?

LILAed is a collaborative residential learning lab, facilitated in person by Marga Biller from Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where we learn with and from one another.

School Principals connect with academics who share their research and encourage participants to take on experimental initiatives based on these insights.

The theme for our upcoming intake is ‘Adaptive cultures: How school leadership creates the conditions for success’. Together we will explore a range of focus questions, including:

  • How can Principals better understand their own school cultures and identify ways to foster adaptive capacity?
  • How do we maintain what makes a culture unique while at the same time creating an adaptive culture?
  • What are the factors that lead to establishing adaptive cultures, where all its elements learn and evolve within a continually changing context?
