University of Otago College of Education Dean Ross Notman is delighted a book he co-edited received top honours at the 2018 Copyright Licensing Education Awards earlier this month.

Professor Notman, who is also Director of the Centre for Educational Leadership and Administration, co-edited Educational leadership in Aotearoa New Zealand: Issues of context and social justice with Rachel McNae and Michele Morrison (both from the University of Waikato).

The book, which was published by NZCER Press, took top honours in the Best Teacher Resource in the Primary Resources category during ceremony which was part of the uLearn18 Conference, held at Auckland’s Sky City Convention Centre on 11 October.

“I was delighted to receive the award, particularly for the school and early childhood leaders who shared their experience of high-needs contexts and social justice in their workplace,” Professor Notman says.

This book presents 10 inspirational case studies of how New Zealand early childhood leaders, school principals and leadership teams have worked for social justice for children in high-needs settings.

“The book is written for early childhood, primary, intermediate and secondary school leaders and teachers; providers of educational leadership professional programmes and tertiary courses; and education system leaders,” he says.
