chen-schechter-webThe first of this year's 2023 'In Conversation With' Educational Policy and Leadership webinar series with Dr Gavin Murphy is Prof Schechter from Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Prof Schechter discusses generally outlined education reforms and the importance of school leaders' sensemaking being engaged as it is led. He draws on research in the Israeli context with colleagues to illustrate the messages he shares in the webinar. Key messages include implications for educational policy and its leadership at school and system levels. 

Dr Gavin Murphy is strand leader for the Leadership and Policy strand of the M.Ed programme. Gavin's research focuses on educational policy and leadership, specifically the policy and leadership of teacher and school leaders' education at system and organisational levels, both in Ireland and internationally.
