shared his insights of educational leadership online
Apart from the academic conference, China Centre also invited senior international education expert, Mr. David Ingram, founding Head of College at Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi, for an online masterclass themed Leadership Constants at a Time of Change.
Mr. Ingram first shared his inspiration of being an educator, by reviewing his education background and career path in international education sector.
On top of that, Mr. Ingram introduced leadership constants in rapidly changing industrial environment, via the aspects of "pedagogy", "people" and "(yourself as a) person". From the understanding of effective education to tips of prioritizing daily schedule, Mr. Ingram not only brought enlightening concepts and precise interpretation of leading roles’ responsibilities, but also provided practical takeaways for current and future educational leaders to make impact on school culture, to build up a collaborative team, to encourage team members and even to manage themselves.
Through this 3-day intensive virtual conference, students of MA Educational Leadership in Practice course had a chance to brainstorm and discuss with world leading Manchester academics as well as industrial peers among different cutting-edge topics.
In parallel with a true “Manchester classroom”, they could also be truly benefited from the value-added industry sharing session. Relied on the China Centre’s decades of endeavor in the region, the students would have the opportunities to connect with local experts, as well as refresh their mindsets with first-hand, practical industrial insights.
