The world is undergoing increasingly rapid change unprecedented in human history, powered by the impact of information and communication technology on society, and by new ways of knowing and doing across the globe. The impact of this culture of change has been amplified through ubiquitous, mobile, and personal wireless technologies making communication and movement of information easier and less expensive locally and globally. Subsequently, traditional practices in the workplace and across communities have been altered and have evolved beyond the comfort level of many established professionals. This change in workflow and management of knowledge is creating a demand for new skills and new ways of thinking. Reconceptualising and reorganizing approaches to professional learning for various sectors of the workforce has become necessary, as is the redefinition of traditional roles and practices. The research described in this paper is about school leaders learning to change (L2C) in this 21st century context.
