Desperately Seeking Fusion: two perspectives of leading learning in a Networked Learning Community

Darren Holmes and Jean Hart
 

Abstract
 
The Hartlepool Networked Learning Community and the Bransholme NLC are resourced by the National College for School Leadership. The paper describes how two of the leaders of these networks approached their tasks and how they came to terms with a challenging role that added to their own leadership learning. Emphasis is given to the search for locating network practices that provide high leverage for improvement, the design of organizational structures that support this learning, the alignment of the learning to the pressing challenges and compelling work that networked schools face and the problems of evaluating the successes of networked learning.

Keywords
