This book facilitates a dialogue about teaching and learning in the school environment with an understanding that the art and practice of teaching needs to keep pace with emerging demands and challenges. With social distinctions becoming fluid and workplaces increasingly complex, schools too need to change and develop systems to confront these challenges.
Arun Kapur, a leading educator, weaves together his expertise and experience to offer insights into what makes a ‘great’ school. He provides the tools and resources for directing a school on its journey with a growth plan for all stakeholders in a school–students, teachers, administrators and parents.
Some of the issues discussed are:
- Rationale and purpose of a school
- Curriculum design
- Models of assessment
- Impact of technology
- Teacher training
- Leadership and management
- Individualised learning
- Inclusive education
