There has never been a greater need for experts to help guide our school communities to successful futures for all stakeholders within the community. The global pandemic has challenged us all to re-examine even the most basic aspects of delivering quality education to our students and presented unprecedented challenges across our entire world. So, we have teamed up with EnRusk—a group of highly experienced experts who live to create, connect, and innovate—to provide a valuable Advisory Service.
A Partnership with Purpose: Introducing Dr Kynan Robinson and EnRusk
ECIS strive to create a reputation of inclusive learning for all. Together with our partners, we provide thought leadership and a dedicated willingness to help and support our community: to mentor and work to help everyone, to be committed wholehearted, to start a movement. Our Global Advisory is a piece of this vision, where all stakeholders are empowered to make a difference for our students, our teams and the world we create together.
EnRusk is a global consultancy working with schools globally to facilitate change. They bring years of experience as well as new tools and fresh approaches to problem-solving, including Design Thinking, creativity and Agile methodologies. They are leaders, professionals, and innovators but also artists, writers, and visionaries who can effectively guide you through any challenge you may face. EnRusk was founded and is led by Dr Kynan Robinson. Dr Robinson has forged a global career as an innovator, thought leader and master facilitator helping schools and education organisations rethink themselves, transforming them into cultures of innovation and change ensuring they stay connected and contributing to the latest thinking around learning and education. His passion for systems thinking, creativity and its role in education, a student-centred approach and building networks and communities that can learn from each other has resulted in him receiving global acclaim and numerous awards acknowledging his work. His personal research, resulting in his dissertation, is considered groundbreaking and “an important contribution to the field of education” (D. Sumara Professor, University of Calgary). In it he redefined creativity as collective experiences and defined ways our schools can better enable it. His vision for leaning and schooling aligns closely with ECIS’s vision and purpose.
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that change isn’t a choice, it’s an imperative. The pandemic and other global crises have caught many educators a little off guard. But rather than being merely reactionary now is the time to take the helm and redesign our schools so we can all thrive and have the agility to iterate, no matter what the future may hold. Now is the time to take the helm and redesign our schools so we can all thrive and have the agility to iterate, no matter what the future may hold.
In even the best of times, research suggests that if schools are not changing or evolving, they stagnate, and stagnation can lead to failure. Our dedicated team of experts will support you to undertake a process of change, to become sustainable and provide students in your curtilage the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We will provide you with the tools to keep innovating and honing your communication, so you become a trusted voice. This includes Agile methodologies, Design Thinking and our own frameworks that we have developed over decades of experience.
