Research-informed thinkpieces focusing on the pressing global challenges facing educational leadership in a changing world.

UCL Centre for Educational Leadership (CEL) thinkpieces are designed to extend criticality and activate knowledge, stimulate dialogue, promote further inquiry and learning, and encourage new and shared thinking that promotes innovative approaches to practice and policy.

Each thinkpiece concludes with questions to aid reflection on current practice, challenge assumptions about the status quo, and encourage deep and meaningful learning conversations that will lead to purposeful and intentional change to enhance policy, practice and students’ and stakeholders’ learning and wellbeing.
