EDUC 7856 - Capstone: Advocacy and Leadership for Positive Social Change


(6 sem. cr.) What knowledge, skills, and dispositions should early childhood leaders exemplify? The field needs leaders who (a) know the history and understand the values and ethics of the field; (b) who approach the present and the future as critical and creative thinkers committed to positive change; and (c) who are advocates, researchers, relationship builders, data-driven decision makers, and managers of change with a keen understanding of diversity, humane interaction, organizational development, and system-oriented thinking. In this course, professionals engage in the study of leadership for positive social change in the early childhood field, which culminates in a capstone project that requires participants to apply the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of a leader to effect change in an early childhood setting of their choice.
