Judy Halbert and Linda Kaser have the privilege of leading the Networks of Inquiry and Indigenous Education and the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network. They are deeply committed to achieving equity and quality for all learners—and to networking for innovation and improvement both in Canada and internationally. To that end, they served as Canadian representatives to the OECD international research program on Innovative Learning Environments. They are also working with partners in Australia, New Zealand and England to grow the Networks internationally.
Linda and Judy have served as principals, district leaders, and policy advisors with British Columbia’s Ministry of Education in the areas of district improvement, rural education, literacy and Indigenous education.
They are the co-authors of The Spiral Playbook (2017), System Transformation for Equity and Quality (2016), Spirals of Inquiry (2013), Leadership Mindsets: Innovation and Learning in the Transformation of Schools (2009) and with Helen Timperley, A Framework for Transforming Learning in Schools: Innovation and the Spiral of Inquiry (2014).
