The Unlearning Leader: Leading for Tomorrow's Schools Today

December 05, 2017

Tuesday, Dec 5th • 8 am PT / 11 am ET

Superintendents Michael Lubelfeld and Nick Polyak, co-authors of the book, “The Unlearning Learner,” and moderators of the popular #suptchat on Twitter, will provide key insights into how school leaders can connect with colleagues and students, support learning, and change organizational culture. In some school systems, executive leadership does not yet understand or value current means of communication, particularly digital methods. Their relative lack of knowledge about social connectivity can become detrimental to school systems in pursuit of change, innovation, and leadership.

Lubelfeld, who was named Lake County Superintendent of the Year last May, and Polyak, who was named Superintendent of Distinction by his colleagues in Cook West Region of the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) in April 2016, are aiming to change that. The two Illinois-based educators, who hold a combined 40-plus years of experience working in multiple sides of K-12 education, will shed light on how school administrators can:

  • Take advantage of connection opportunities to lead and learn for tomorrow
  • Energize colleagues to think, act, and lead differently
  • Leverage experience, observations, mistakes, and successes to determine a new leadership path for the organization
  • Unlearn old truths to begin to lead in a new way

Presented by:

  • Michael Lubelfeld, Superintendent, Deerfield Public Schools District 109
  • Nick Polyak, Superintendent, Leyden High School District 212
