20 Other aspects?
- Thank you for the invitation, provide a very clear starting point,
- To use the information in the particulary case of my school;
- To change the opinion of the change to all the teachers in our school (try hard);
- To transform the individual good teacher in a good team (professional team)
- To make the change possible;
- This course is for me very interesting, very attractive and professional;
- To change the opinion about change to all the teachers in our school;
- Reflection was central to the course content and this facilitated my ability to meet my personal objectives;
- I came to the course already confident but learn so much that I would recommend that all practitioners should experience this course to continue their learning;
- My own framework was re-evaluated and for the better
- I came to this course, thinking that I am very experienced in ‘change’ and that I didn’t have much to learn – I was wrong.
- It has helped me to focus on what I used to do without thinking and that I have ‘last my way with’.
- I have learned much and I am now well placed to begin change immediately;
- In Welsh: ‘Didch yn fawr iawn’ = thanks you very much
- Tip: let participants complete the summary of the course on the wall;
- You could also have given this course in another order:
o Start with own thinking about change and use appreciative inquiry as an example of change
o Kotter as a focus on change;
o Collaborative leadership (how to come to descriptions, discoveries, …)
o Dene Magna as tools for collaboration
o Orders, levels of change
o Summary = no framework
Current frame, renewing, renewed
In the whole course could you have used an example of change of beliefs, which is a higher order
