EDUC 7210 - Leadership for Today’s Schools
(6 sem. cr.) Today’s schools are dynamic places and require leaders who understand how learning communities operate and thrive and are prepared to deal with the demands of internal and external forces. In this course, education professionals make connections between change theory and the continual appraisal of evolving needs of the learning community and application of a grounded knowledge base of theory and practical strategies supported by research. Education professionals are empowered to explore current and future technology as they assess educational trends and issues. Education professionals also analyze their own and others’ paradigms and leadership styles, and they determine best practices to promote positive social change.
