EDL 630 - School Leadership in a Changing World


Explores the role of the school building leader in a variety of contexts. Candidates who aspire to school leadership will examine the political, social, economic and global contexts of schools and leadership. Candidates will develop skills in political advocacy and working with community, social and professional organizations. Candidates will also study the history and realities of education policy development. Each of these new courses are linked pieces with research-based content, aligned with professional standards and focused on instruction, organizational development and change management; with curricular coherence that links goals, learning activities and assessments around a set of shared values, beliefs and knowledge about effective organizational practice; with field-based internships embedded throughout the coursework that enable the application of leadership knowledge and skills under the guidance of an expert practitioner; with problem-based learning strategies such as case methods, action research and projects that link theory and practice and support reflection; with a focus on student achievement: with collaboration between universities and school districts; with technology, data analysis and data-informed decision making incorporated throughout the coursework; and with a delivery format which is hybrid, weekend and field-based.
