Collaborative Decision-Making for schools

When pupils are involved in making important decisions about what goes on in their schools and classrooms, engagement and productivity increase and behaviour improves.

Decisions can be made in collaboration with pupils about curriculum, discipline, the environment, or resource and time management. Collaborative decision-making has the potential to make a significant difference to well-being and educational outcomes, particularly for under-privileged pupils.

The blog articles on this website have a solid professional and research base. Some examples of what you will find in the Blog section of this website include: collaborative decision-making in other organisations; School features that promote collaboration; psychological aspects of group decision-making; staff wellbeing; and material for professional development. Please contact me with suggestions for additional articles and resources. I invite you to share your stories about collaborative decision-making, so that other teachers can learn from your experience.
