Reflections on EduTech 2018 – talking Resilience at the cutting edge of Education
When it comes to creating vibrant, multi-faceted professional development events which balance the big-picture forecast with the here-and-now practical, nobody does it quite like the Education sector. Were were humbled and privileged to be invited to offer our reflections and experiences alongside a stacked lineup of truly impressive thinkers and practitioners at this year's #EduTechAU conference, and it was an even more fulfilling experience than we'd hoped.
We're often asked the question: “why is resilience important in education workforces?”. The answer: because you can't create a sustainable, productive Education sector if you don't have teachers and educational leaders who effectively manage their own wellbeing and performance for the long haul. Both sides are critical: push too hard for workforce performance without wellbeing and you're flirting with the risk of burnout; foster workforce wellbeing without performance and you'll never achieve the impact you want to see on student and community outcomes.
Growing our niche expertise in the Education sector has been one of our greatest privileges as a practice. We'll be continuing to support educational leaders to develop their resilience through a series of workshops in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane over the coming months.
