Leaders Influencing Teachers' High Expectations (LITHE™)

UACEL is delighted to announce that the development of our new "Leaders Influencing Teachers' High Expectations" seminar series is complete. The LITHE™ series is based on the ground breaking research of Professor Christine Rubie-Davies and is designed to support school leaders and teachers as they investigate the implications of this research on student achievement.

The four half-day programme explores high expectation teaching theory and its potential to accelerate student outcomes. It provides powerful insights, compelling evidence and practical strategies for rethinking the nature of differentiation, class climate and student goal setting. This programme challenges many of the existing practices currently used in New Zealand schools.

LITHE™ is designed for school leaders and provides practical support for those wishing to revisit their school’s approach to teaching and learning on the basis of researched evidence. Click here for an insight into the work behind this exciting new programme.

We look forward to offering this significant leadership PLD opportunity to your school. Please see dates below for more details.

LITHE™ funding support may be available to your school through Ministry of Education PLD funding.

LITHE Courses

We encourage three or more people to attend from each enrolling organisation. Feedback from our workshops suggests that the learning is most valuable and has the greatest impact, when a team of three or more from a school attend together.

“We have used both your book and the resources and information you personally presented in our school to great advantage for our students and to challenge our thinking about unconscious bias and the reality of 'high expectation' practice.

This focus was further affirmed for us last year when we were selected by ERO to be part of a new publication coming out this year concerning the practice making a difference to student achievement in Years 4-6.”

Carol Bevis, Principal Bledisloe School, Taradale
