Transformative Educational Leadership Program – UBC TELP
January 2020
How do you drive system change? UBC TELP inspires leaders to create a spiral of
positivity, deep learning, and innovative practice. TELP, currently in its 5th year, is a one-year, cohort-based program designed for educational change-makers who are motivated to lead system transformation in their schools, districts, and communities. Through a series of Friday evening and Saturday sessions, with facilitated online interactions throughout the year, TELP colleagues interact with innovative researchers, practitioners, and world-class scholars at UBC Vancouver.


 Dr. Linda Kaser (pictured top) and Dr. Judy Halbert (pictured bottom) lead TELP and the Networks of Inquiry and Indigenous Education (NOIIE). They have served as teachers, principals, district leaders and policy advisors with BC’s Ministry of Education and were recently honoured, along with colleague Debbie Leighton Stephens, with the 2019 Cmolik Prize for Innovation in Education.
They have worked extensively to support inquiry networks and leadership groups in BC, the Yukon, England, Catalonia, Sweden, and Australia. They are deeply committed to achieving equity and quality for all learners—and to networking for innovation and improvement across systems.


Since the beginning of TELP in 2015, more than 100 graduates have grown as educational leaders, and through an inquiry and research-based approach, have conducted leading edge work in their schools and districts, such as:


Much of this work is captured in the TEL Journal, where TELP graduates share stories of transformative leadership, and particularly, how using research in practice impacts learners. The TEL Journal is one way for graduates to stay networked, continue to learn from each other, and share their work internationally. 


Save the dates: May 28-30th!
The Leading Edge Conference, held at UBC Vancouver, will showcase leading educational practices and research from around the world. Engage in deep conversations with diverse international education leaders, storytellers, and researchers from around the globe.
Learn more from over 100 TELP graduates about their experience in the program.
“There are times in our career when we need to invest deeply in our own professional knowledge and understandings to be better able to support, guide and lead. TELP was a rich opportunity to learn from outstanding colleagues, researchers from across the world, and be immersed in current research. I am grateful for the impact TELP has had on my work.”

Teresa Downs, Gold Trail School District
“TELP has been an inspiring, motivating, and incredible learning experience. The readings are insightful and rich with great research and moving stories. The best part of TELP is the conversations we have with people from all over the province and the guest speakers from all over the world!” 

– Ted Johnson, Delta School District
“The TELP sessions, were, without a doubt, one of the most valuable learning experiences that I have ever engaged in. I wholeheartedly recommend this opportunity to any educator looking to be challenged, grow and connect with what is current in education in our province, country and the world.”

– Vianne Kitzinger, Central Okanagan School District
