ECPEL 701 - Seminar in Organizational Leadership Change

Overview

Course Title

Seminar in Organizational Leadership Change

Description

The challenges of improving educational organizations have driven the distribution of leadership responsibilities across a broad array of roles within and beyond the schools. These roles include lead teacher, content area specialist, facilitators, coaches, department chairs, principals, assistant principals, community/parent liaisons, central office administrators and staff, and school board members. The purpose of this course is to coach educational leaders to function as agents of change; understand the make-up of school as organization to diagnose problems, to motivate commitment to improvement, to devise and implement plans for improvement, and monitor and adapt those plans in response to policy-defined constraints and expectations. Acting as agents of organizational change requires that educational leaders develop a repertoire of concepts and knowledge about organizations in general and educational organizations in particular. The repertoire amounts to a foundation for diagnosing organizational problems and devising and enacting solutions
