Many in schools (particularly Secondary level) might be interested to spend 35 minutes with Rose Hipkins.
Generally school librarians wouldn’t have access to anything like this talk, but curriculum affects you and isn’t it great that you can watch online.
Rose Hipkins, Senior Researcher at NZCER, spoke at CORE Education’s May breakfast session in Dunedin on “The shape of curriculum change, designing a local curriculum from a national framework.” Rose speaks in some detail to a recent explorative report from NZCER highlighting the impact of change on schools, teachers and curriculum.

Here is Rose Hipkins presentation on Inquiry learning from 2008. Still topical, still we embrace Inquiry learning and this is still topical. At abut 26 minutes through there is more stuff on Inquiry on the presentation above. If this interests you then it really is a must watch.
On Inquiry learning in this presentation she states “It needs a to be both student centered and teacher directed”. I don’t know about you but does this always happen in your library? Where do you fit in? You aren’t the teacher and you aren’t the student but you can do lots of directing.
At 31min through she talks about student voice and student agency. Interesting stuff here. Things that can be applied to libraries. Buy in from everyone is an ideal but how do you make that happen.
She talks about using your extended community to learn together. Everybody needs to understand school.
