Aimed at schools this recently published David Fullan book is potentially a great resource as part of a collective pedagogical approach to learning for Colleges too. This easy to digest book provides a research base behind tried and tested pedagogical tools and techniques. I love the concept of ‘academic buoyancy’ #37, new for me. The 5 competencies of ‘academic buoyancy’ take building resilience a step further; by simultaneously targeting confidence, co-ordination, commitment, composure & control. Research on this approach is in its infancy, but it appears to offer a great base for tutorials and the work of learning coaches.
