Leading Learning that Matters (LLtM) is a multi-year collaboration with the Independent Schools Victoria (ISV), Australia, to explore and document what leading learning that matters for our contemporary world looks like in a variety of cultural, urban, and rural K-12 contexts in the state of Victoria. Beginning in 2013, and continuing with a second cohort in 2017, experienced Independent school principals in Victoria, Australia, work with researchers from Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education, to identify leadership practices necessary for planning and implementing school innovations for 21st century learning.  The collaboration has resulted in innovations in classroom and leadership practices in participating schools, as well as impacted the communities they work in. It has also established and continues to sustain a vibrant learning community of experienced principals, who work with the research team to explore how insights and images of practice for 21st century learning and leadership may speak beyond the boundaries of ISV and inspire schools around the globe. This work is supported through residential workshops with local and international experts, an international study tour including a customized seminar at Harvard University, site visits and meetings with international business leaders, and the ongoing support from both the Harvard team and Independent Schools Victoria.
