    Next Practices Help You Create the Future

    “Recently I have realised that ‘next practice’ is not about the goal, it is about the journey. In most cases this is going to take a fair bit of learning from others, of looking at the current ‘best practice’, but fundamentally I think it is not about emulation but about a research based approach to constant evaluation and development. ‘Next practice’ is a commitment to a process not an end product. In moving from ‘best practice’ to ‘next practice’ we acknowledge that the best solutions come from development,” wrote Oliver Quinlan, author of The Thinking Teacher.
