TLED 738 - Leadership in Education

3 hours
Teacher leadership is not an event, but a process which encompasses studying, practicing, and developing leadership skills and competencies such as the development of knowledge, abilities, and dispositions necessary for effective and ethical leadership that are essential for school improvement efforts.  The teacher leadership candidates examine the principles and techniques required of teacher leaders.  In addition, this course explores the expansion of the teacher role from the classroom to the school community.  Teacher leaders focus on research and best practices in leadership, the study of leadership frameworks and models of shared governance, professional accountability, and leading collaborative teams in setting results-oriented goals. This course includes a 10-hour practicum experience during which theory is applied to practice. Candidates must complete their practicum requirements in schools with a diverse population. GR
