  • What

Educational institutions, just like all other organizations, undergo change regularly. But change doesn’t necessarily bring improvement. It all depends upon how well implementing change in schools is done. Change in educational institutions may be due to new state educational requirements, introducing new technology into the classroom, or updates in textbooks and teaching methods.

One of the biggest impacts seen recently that calls for leading change in schools has been the coronavirus pandemic, which completely changed the educational process for students and teachers around the world.

Organizational change in education doesn’t just happen by giving a school the new process, tools, or methods they need to change to; it has to be guided with the best change management strategies.

During this course, we’ll look at the importance of change management in the education sector, and answer several important questions, including:

• Why is change important in education?
• What changes should be made in schools?
• What is the best process for implementing changes in education?
• How do you implement change in schools? (The people)
• What are some teacher tips? How do headteachers manage change in schools?
• How do you promote change in education?

Anyone leading change in education knows that change only happens when people change their habits, and change management is focused on that fact. Teachers, administrators and staff, students, and parents can all be impacted by a change, and need to be considered when leading and managing change in educational institutions. The process involves unmolding old behaviors, training new practices and behaviors, and then reinforcing the new way of doing things. Successfully guiding people through that change process is the goal of change management in educational institutions.
