Press Release: Schools Must Change to Thrive: Michael Fullan Gives the Skinny on Becoming Change Savvy
Salt Lake City, UT – September 8, 2010 – School Improvement Network and Corwin announce the launch of a new online course from change expert Michael Fullan based on his best-selling book, Motion Leadership: The Skinny on Becoming Change Savvy, beginning September 1.
Motion Leadership is a content-rich online course that dives deep into what it takes for any school leader to put real and measurable change in motion. The course is divided into eight self-paced modules. Through each module, participants join Michael on a journey that explores change leadership—visiting, through video, successful schools and effective administrators that have accomplished significantly profound institutional change that works. Developed in direct collaboration with Michael, the Motion Leadership course is intended for leaders as well as leadership teams as they focus on putting practice into theory.
Throughout the duration of the course, participants will hear directly from Michael in webinars and Q&A sessions and will have the opportunity to develop their own customized action plans. Every license to the Motion Leadership course also includes free and unlimited use of PD 360, the world’s largest community of over 700,000 educators, for 6 months. In addition to receiving rich video content, participants of this course will have the opportunity to earn graduate level units from the fully accredited Seattle Pacific University for less than half the cost of what the average graduate school charges.
Never before has Michael Fullan demonstrated in such great detail with extensive example how change is truly possible through movement and action. He explains, “You have this movement of a critical mass of practitioners who are working together now within the school, across schools, across districts, within whole states and provinces, who because there are so many of them, because it’s so grounded, because it’s so clear when it works, and because we’ve captured it on film and otherwise, it’s going to really have an even bigger impact in the next ten years.”
