A requirement of a leader is to establish relationships, and to persuade and influence others. In this task you are to give a five minute presentation supported by electronic media (e.g. Powerpoint, Prezi, Video). You will introduce yourself to the staff of a new school where you have been appointed as leader. You will outline your background, explaining what you bring to the role of an educational leader and what you believe to be important in school education today.
This new appointment may not be in the same region/district that you currently work. Therefore, you should not assume any prior knowledge of the staff, local strategies, programs or priorities that may be specific to a particular geographic area, or education system.
The task will be presented in one of two ways.
a) For those attending, your presentation will be presented to fellow students at the residential at the end of Week three. There will be an opportunity for feedback to be provided by your peers at the residential. These presentations will be video recorded and uploaded to a YouTube site for sharing with any of the cohort that are not in attendance.
b) For those not attending the residential you will need to record your presentation, save it as an MP4 file and upload it via Moodle by the due date, Monday 27 March. These will be added to the You Tube site for others to access.
A secondary focus for this task is to build a community of learners for those undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership program.
