EDAD 6805 - Facilitating Productive Working Relationships and School Culture to Enhance Student Learning♦


(3 sem. cr.) In this course, educators examine the critical functions of the school leader, including developing consensus that promotes action through processes of effective decision making, patterns of communication, and strategies for conflict resolution; infusing leadership throughout the school by promoting collaborative structures and strategies; and establishing a personal, ethical, and moral platform for leadership. Educators assess concepts and share perspectives through discussions on the role of principals as leaders, effective approaches to build on or reshape an existing culture to produce greater performance of staff and students, and shared leadership as a strategy for fostering and sustaining school culture. They also have the opportunity to reflect on their understanding, including changes in thinking, based on experiences and knowledge gained through coursework.
