3rd RCELAM 2013 (19 - 21 November 2013) - Genting Highlands

Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh - Minister of Education Malaysia officiating the Opening Ceremony of 3rd RCELAM 2011

Keynote Speech 1 : Prof. Dr. Tony Bush - The Nottingham University, UK.

Education is increasingly regarded as the key to economic and social development.   Many governments, including Malaysia, are reforming their education systems to bring about school improvement.  This paper will explore the leadership implications of educational reform, in recognition that change succeeds, or may falter, at the school level.   The paper will examine the nature and scope of school leadership and consider how good leaders manage their schools.    The Malaysia Education Blueprint (Ministry of Education 2012) advocates instructional leadership and the paper will address what this means for school leaders.   The paper will consider the evidence on the impact of school leadership on learner outcomes and discuss the implications of reform for the development of leaders.   .......

Keynote Address 2 : Prof. Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak - President International Association of Universities, Paris. Topic : Exploring new possibilities in the era of sustainability

Education will be facing a period uncertainty as we approach the end of several of global agenda such as Education for All, and the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. The last decade has witnessed education being challenged by the need to construct new vision and pathway towards sustainability, be it with respect to learning and teaching processes, curriculum design and quality systems towards sustainable development. The post-2015 development agenda will most likely to further challenge education by requiring new leadership and management skills in reorienting education for sustainability in the 21st century.
Keynote Address 3 : Dr. David Zyngier - Monash University, Melbourne Australia.
Topic : Education for Democracy : Exploring New Possibilities globally and locally. What the research suggests.

This paper reports on the research of the international Global Doing Democracy Research Project, which currently has some 50 scholars in over 25 countries examining perspectives and perceptions of democracy in education in order to develop a more robust and critical democratic education among pre- and in-service teachers, teacher education academics, and educators, in general. The focus of the project is on how education supports, cultivates and engages in, and with, democracy

Keynote Address 4 : Prof. Alma Harris, Professor and Director, Institute of Educational Leadership, University of Malaya
Topic : Leading School and System Transformation

School and system improvement will not be secured without a shift in emphasis from knowledge exchange to knowledge creation. This will require greater innovation and creativity in our schools and school systems than ever before. However the challenges associated with this shift cannot be underestimated. This keynote focuses on the challenges, potential and possibilities of school and system transformation. It explores how creativity and innovation can be secured at scale through a combination of collaboration and consolidation. It considers the type of educational leadership required to support such change and argues for distributed leadership where it is expertise, rather than role, than defines the leader. It argues that distributed leadership 'matters' and that if we are serious about school and system transformation we need forms of leadership that will help lead us into the future and not those rooted in the past.
