The Department of Education held its first spring workshop on Saturday, February 9, 2019, which was entitled "Leadership to create impact." The workshop was moderated by Darlene Fisher, a Lead Educator and workshop designer with extensive experience as a trainer and consultant with the International Baccalaureate organization. The workshop was organized in collaboration with Taetheer, a new local initiative of school leaders aimed at promoting leadership capacity building in schools. There were 50 attendees – mostly holding school leadership positions - from more than 10 private schools in Beirut and Mount Lebanon.
During the workshop participants explored the following three questions through interactive discussion and activities, and based on some of the latest research into effective school leadership: (i) what is it that allows leaders to have impact? (ii) what skills do students need in a globalized world? (iii) what leadership strategies can work to support these changes and developments?
