Preparing effective leaders for our schools is a critical and crucial element in the current educational landscape.  Finding the right people with effective communication skills and sound, research-based strategies and approaches to lead the training is of upmost importance.  That is one reason I identified Erin Henrick to speak to our Leadership Academy participants at Union University.  Her work on continuous improvement science addressed specific identified needs in our curriculum for our leaders.  Erin’s presentation style is engaging, conversational and geared to bridge the gap between training and reality.  I highly recommend Dr. Erin Henrick for her professional approach to teaching, learning, and consulting.

At Silkeborg Gymnasium we have been working systematically with whole-school learning projects for a number of years, for example a three-year project on visible learning (Hattie). We are now in the process of developing professional learning communities with the ambition of transforming our strong tradition for professional collaboration to collaborative professionalism.

A seminar with Erin Henrick for our 150 teachers was an immensely important stepping-stone in this process. Danish high-school teachers, who all have a master’s degree in their subject, and on top of that a one-year pedagogical course (practice and theory), are hard to impress. But everyone felt that they had a very fruitful and inspiring day with Erin.
