This blog reflects on leadership practice during COVID-19 lockdown in India in response to the global pandemic. The reflections emanate from my experience of visiting India from March-May 2020 as part of an IPDA funded research scholarship. I draw on Schön’s distinction between reflection in action and refection on action (Schön, 1983) and Kolb’s experiential learning cycle (Kolb, 1984) to analyse my observations and experience and relate them to professional practice. These theoretical tools provide a frame for professional learning and development of research-based practice. In this blog, I apply them to a point in time during an unprecedented global event to reflect on implications for leadership in diverse educational settings using insights from my research experience in India.
