Participants will explore national and global policy agendas on partnership in order to understand the role of leadership in creating and extending practice beyond organisational boundaries. Opportunities and challenges for, and consequences of, collaborative practices will be examined through policy, research and scholarly lenses and applied to participants' work contexts. The dynamic between networking and learning will be foregrounded to support the potential of multi-agency learning communities.
In the 21st century, incentives to collaborate have become increasing evident in social policy contexts, including in education. In this course, we explore why this is the case and how theory can help us to understand how to ensure our collaborations can make a real difference. Participants will gain a strong understanding of the impact of globalisation on local practice and why collaboration is offered up as a solution to complex problems of practice. The challenges of collaborative practice will be explored through research and theory. In the second half of the course, the role of, and approaches to, learning and leadership in creating and sustaining practice that reaches beyond organisational boundaries will be explored, and applied to participant’s professional contexts.
On successful completion of this course students will be able to:1. articulate policy agendas around networking, collaboration and partnership; 2. demonstrate understanding of bi-cultural partnership in Aotearoa New Zealand3. cultivate collective leadership beyond organizational boundaries4. identify the characteristics of effective learning communities5. articulate a process to build capacity for organisational learning6. formulate action plans for sustaining partnership through learning
