What is IDEAS? Innovative Designs for Enhancing Achievements in Schools (IDEAS) is a comprehensive approach to school revitalisation that values, above all else, the work and professionalism of the teachers in our schools and other educational institutions. In so doing it recognises the extraordinary complexity and subtlety of pedagogy and the capacity of the teaching profession to exercise forms of
leadership that have historically been obscured.
IDEAS is distinguished by the use of four interdependent constructs, namely:
• the concept of organisational alignment (The IDEAS Research-based Framework for Enhancing School Outcomes)
• the ideas process of professional inquiry
• three-dimensional pedagogy
• parallel leadership
In this monograph we describe these four distinctive educational constructs to explain how the IDEAS Project works.
