EDAM 588 - Best Practices for School Leaders

3 Credit Hours
Designed to acquaint the future school leaders with theories of school leadership and organization that they can employ in their work. Specifically, the course will use organizational theories to examine the practical challenges that leaders face, including faculty structure, alignment of learning standards with curricula and teaching strategies, initiation of new policies or programs, and ongoing evaluation of programs to insure rigorous implementation. Designed to challenge students to examine these different issues through different organizational frames and to collect relevant data before making decisions. Course is based on the assumption that leaders lead from their values and specific frames, and it encourages self-exploration and clarification of additional frames as a strategy to understand events or policies more deeply.
