EDL-5000 Effective Leadership - From Theory to Practice

This course focuses on the intrapersonal and interpersonal dimensions of leadership and explores the key role of school leaders in developing a positive and inclusive school culture. Aspiring school leaders will develop an understanding of the attributes, dispositions, and behaviors of effective educational leaders and reflect on how they relate to their own leadership skills and experiences. In this course, we use readings, reflective discussion, and case studies to explore foundational theories of leadership and introduce and reflect on how diversity, inclusion, and opportunity affect our abilities to develop trusting and collaborative relationships within the school community and focus stakeholders on a common mission and vision that supports the success and well-being of all students.
