As educators, our only constant is change.
Embracing change is one of the things that teachers do best. In fact, sometimes we can see change as a 4-letter word if it’s implemented without consideration to other initiatives. How often have we felt that we’re changing just for the sake of change and not because it’s for the betterment of students?
In today’s episode, we’re tackling this sticky word with the key idea that innovation and change are closely linked but not always the same. Additionally, we’re exploring how to manage the change process, when disruptive innovation is necessary, and delving into our own personal successes and challenges with both leading and living change.
